Michelin Guide Nordic Countries 2019 selection has been just unveiled in Aarhus, Denmark, featuring 64 Michelin-starred restaurants across the region, with the news of three new 2-star and 4 new 1-star restaurants.
The 2019 guide has three new, two-star restaurants, including René Redzepi’s highly anticipated Copenhagen restaurant, Noma. Apart from the Noma, Jacob Holmstrom and Anton Bjurh’s Gastrologik in Stockholm and KOKS, from the chef Poul Andrias Zisca of the Faroe Islands, were awarded with two stars. Chef Poul Andrias Ziska also received the Michelin Nordic Guide Young Chef 2019 award.
Geranium, Maaemo and Frantzén retained their three stars in the 2019 selection.
“The Nordic countries offer something truly unique and the diversity and buoyancy of the region’s restaurant scene make it so appealing to food lovers from around the world,” says Gwendal Poullennec, international director of the MICHELIN Guides. “Chefs continue to develop both their own skills and techniques but also lead the way in reducing food waste, focusing on truly local ingredients and even embracing a more plant-based diet.”
