Denmark is fast becoming known as Scandinavia’s gourmet food capital. This is in part thanks to the wealth of natural raw ingredients that chefs and ordinary Danes can access around the country. Foraging for regional ingredients is more popular than ever and more and more restaurants are experimenting with new takes on traditional Danish recipes. Denmark can also boast a long tradition of producing world-class meat and diary products, thanks to generations of Danes who have worked hard to perfect the process of safe and sustainable food production in Denmark.

At the northern-most part of Denmark, you are always close to raw, beautiful nature, and incredible sunlight that has drawn artists here for over 100 years. Tareq visits a salt maker using medieval techniques, an aquarium where he gets up close to the fish, and the town of Skagen, considered one of Denmark’s most beautiful towns.
