Taste the benefits at the Nordic hotdog challenge

Everyone is a winner as the top Nordic chefs go head-to-head

When the top Scandinavian chefs battle it out for the Nordic hotdog title this evening, there will be ample opportunity for the public to scoff down gourmet hotdogs made using purely Nordic ingredients.

And it will be for a good cause as well, with all the profits going to a charitable organisation chosen by the winning chef of the hotdog championship.

The Nordic hotdog challenge is part of the ongoing Nordic food festival Nordlige Norden, which features some of the most scrumptious delicacies in the Nordic kitchen. The festival, which is free and open to the public, is being held at Nikolaj Plads in the inner city from May 28-30.

Everyone wins
The public can buy a gourmet hotdog for 50 kroner via a coupon obtainable from the stall Föroya Björ & Herlsev Bryghus. The coupons can be purchased from 17:00 this evening and the hotdog sale will commence at 17:15 and last until 18:45, or until they are sold out.

The winner of the Nordic hotdog challenge will then be announced by the judging panel at 19:00.

The festival is organised by the Food Organization of Denmark, an NGO that aims to promote Nordic food, culture and nature.
