I hope you lovelies had a nice weekend. I have a lot of content from Copenhagen and one of my favourites is our dinner at Kong Hans Kælder where my sister and I spent believe it or not over 4 hours eating their delicious dishes. I must admit I thought Nicole in Istanbul was at the top of my dining experiences, however, Kong Hans Kælder in Copenhagen tops the list up and I highly recommend you treat yourself if you are in Copenhagen.
Michelin Star dining is something I love, however as it requires a special occasion, I don’t do it as often, but, what is more special than spending Christmas with your sister in a beautiful location such as Copenhagen. The whole experience was out of this world from the moment we stepped into the Kong Hans Kælder to the minute we left.
Located in Vingårdstræde Kong Hans Kælder received a Michelin Star in 1983 and it serves as an institution that offers comfort and luxury well that at least how we felt. We were absolutely mesmerised by the whole experience. Unlike other Michelin Star restaurants in Copenhagen including Noma that offer seasonal Scandinavian dishes, Kong Hans still serves classic French cuisine.
We were warmly welcomed with a glass of Dom Pérignon Blanc, 2006 and selection of the most delicious snacks including Oyster, horseradish & foam, Quail egg with caviar, Profiteroles & parmesan and Krustade with pheasant veloute. Each snack was so beautifully presented and the combination of ingredients tasted like from out of this world.
We went for a wine pairing as what is a good without tasty wine.
After snacks, it only got better with each dish starting with Squid and Caviar paired with 2010, Vandange Manuelle, Domaine de Montrieux, Loire, France.
Next we had Brill fried on the bone separated by their skilful staff for our own convenience, followed by a Grilled Winter Cabbage paired with 2014, Saint-Romain “Combe Bazin”, Domaine de Chassosnay, Burgundy, France.
Like this wasn’t enough, we next enjoyed Consumme of Bresse chicken paired with 2012, Cotes du Jura “Les Belemnites”. Goec Buronfosse, Jura France.
Just when you think life can’t get any better here comes the Truffle glazed pheasant with celeriac and truffle jus cut and served right in front of us. This dish was paired with my long times favourite 2011, Barolo, Elio Altare, Piemonte, Italy.
Last but not least is Venison from Faldhøje with pumpkin and sauce gastrique paired with 2012, Emilien, Château le Puy, Bordeaux, France.
For desserts, we enjoyed a pear sorbet and a selection of mature cheeses served with garnish by the table. Our choice was a selection of mild to strong soft cheeses, we washed it down with Macvin Blacn, Champ Divin, and 2013, Riesling Spatlese “Von der Lay”, Rita & Rudolf Trossen, Mosel Germany. Followed by delicious Quince with crème anglaise and Cherries with white chocolate, rice and walnuts served with Anthos “Da Uve Appassite”, Matteo Correggia, Canale Italy.
And to nicely finish it all I enjoyed a cup of coffee served in a silver pot and a selection of their finest truffles and small sweet bites.
If you are into fine dining than I recommend you look up Kong Hans and add it to your bucket list as I am 100% sure you will be astounded by not just the food but by the whole experience.
Lots of love!
