Gastronomy pundits eager to devour Michelin star brilliance in Denmark will be required to exercise a little more patience … again.

The Michelin Guide has announced it will postpone the presentation of its prestigious Michelin Guide Nordic Countries 2021 until September.

This will give the organisers more time to assess the effect of the COVID-19 lockdown, as well as providing an opportunity to celebrate the unveiling in a better context. 

The event brings together the best restaurants in the Nordics at an awards ceremony where the vaunted Michelin stars will be handed out.

Second time moved due to COVID-19
This is already the second time the event has been pushed due to COVID-19.

The original release date was on 8 February 2020. This was later moved to the spring of 2021, and now to September 2021.

The presentation of the 2021 Michelin Guide Nordic Countries 2021 be held at Stavanger Concert Hall.

The event can also be followed on either TV – Matkanalen – or via their live stream on YouTube. 

In the most recent awards in 2019, Danish gastronomy icon Noma made its return to the guide following a brief hiatus.

In total, 35 stars were handed out to 28 restaurants with Geranium being the only three-star restaurant in Denmark.
