Right royal cook up!
In the presence of HRH Princess Mary of Denmark at Sydney's Sofitel Wentworth hotel today to hear a discussion on the world's hottest food destination at the moment - Denmark. Copenhagen has more Michelin starred chefs/restaurants for its size than many of Europe's glittering cities.
Rasmus Kofoed is the numero uno top chef in the world according to Bocuse d'Or competition. Rasmus held bronze, silver and then cracked the big one with his amazing technique, style and creativity.
When did Denmark discover good food? In the past it has not had much polish except for a decent sandwich - but now, the entire culinary world is looking its way.
This morning, coinciding with a visit by Prince Frederick and Princess Mary and their twins, Danish food and expertise was on show at the hotel.
Matt Moran was there playing for Australia and he and Rasmus prepared two stunning dishes that a few of us had the privilege to taste. Matt - the spanner crab from Noosa was brilliant and Rasmus - that 'Very Green' dessert was one of the sexiest, silky desserts ever invented, thank you.
