Last night I had the best meal of my life. After it was all over, I was in a kind of dumbstruck food shock state. Everything had been so wonderful, I eventually announced: “That’s the best meal I have ever eaten that I paid for myself!” but after obsessing about it ever since, I have reconsidered. It was the best meal I have ever had FULL STOP.
The esteemed Guild of Food Writers had an event of such divine magnitude, I am certain that I’ll never experience anything like it again. Not only was I surrounded by a bevy of lovely friendly food professionals, there was a non stop taste sensation barrage going on, with lashings of a dozen delicious Danish beers to try too.
There was a veritable banquet of tasty bits and pieces for us to feast on even before the 5 course meal…
The genius chef was Claus Henriksen of Dragsholm Slot. His restaurant in a CASTLE near Copenhagen. Oh my!
Every course (and the bits before and after) were accompanied by perfectly matched beers by the Mikkeller Brewery – very tricky to pick a favourite as they were all gorgeous. Maybe the beetroot beer…?
As I ate and drank every single thing that was put in front of me, I was a bit nervous about getting on the scales this morning, to my amazement I was exactly the same weight as before. So for this, and all of the above I hereby announce that Danish food ROCKS and Danish beer ROCKS.
If only Asta Nielsen had been there, she would have loved it I am sure. I think she may be sipping on a precursor to the Mikkeller “Geek Vanilla Shake, Imperial Stout with Vanilla” that we sampled alongside our pud! What a night…
