In a few days one of my favorite festivals in Copenhagen starts. It’s Copenhagen Cooking, which is a big food festival. The 23th of August to the 1st of September, Copenhagen is full of food related events. The images above are from one of the events I attended last year. Together with the Film Critic Guy, I walked through my favorite street Jægersborggade, and tried small samples of food at 10 different places.

This year, the event at Jægersborggade dosen’t takes place. Instead, the town is full of other funny events. Here are three of my recommendations that work no matter if you speak Danish or not.

International food market af Prags Boulevard
For the fourth year in a row, the hipster street Prags Boulevard throws an international food market. Bring cash and walk around between different stands serving food from all over the world. A small dish usually costs between 30-35 DKK.
Address: Prags Boulevard
Date: Saturday the 31st of August and Sunday the 1st of September

Eat “biksemad” made out of leftovers
During all of the festival, you can attend dinners made out of the food that the supermarkets have thrown out. You come, eat and pay what you think is suitable. The whole event is about reducing food waste, which I think is really nice.
Address: Vesterbro (exact location here)
Date: Friday the 23st of August to Sunday the 1st of September, 5.30-7 PM

Go for a French picnic in Frederiksberg Have
The French school invites whole of Copenhagen (or almost) to a big picnic in the park. Bring something from your own country, and eat of the things that others bring. If you want to dress up, the French school suggests something in blue, red and white - like their flag…
Address: Frederiksberg Have
Date: Friday the 30st of August, 5.30 PM
