fortunately, Knuthenlund wasn’t make believe
Knuthenlund in Stokkemarke in Denmark may have sounded like something out of a fairy-tale book, but fortunately, turned out to be very real indeed. At the end of May 2015, it hosted the international Native Cooking Award competition. A unique cooking competition where chefs are let loose in the countryside on a bike, armed with a basket, to pick and cook – on barbecues only – whatever crosses their paths.
Teams of top chefs from 5 countries cooked on specially designed Dirk Cousaert barbecues. Nick Bril, (The Jane), Michaël Vrijmoed (Vrijmoed), Marcelo Ballardin (Oak) and Tim Boury (Boury) of team Belgium deservedly won the press award and came second overall.
The whole process from designing the unique barbecues, the trip to the collaboration with Carnivale and the chefs was brilliant and enriching. It was an absolutely fantastic experience.
