A chance to dine at the world’s best restaurant doesn’t come around too often. Last night I attended the launch of the Food & Travel Co. at Denmark House with my friends and owners of the company, Kim Coronica (Appetite for Excellence Young Restaurateur of the Year 2010) and Greg Feck (ex-head chef of Richmond Hill Cafe & Larder). The pair’s first gourmet trip, the Nordic Real Food Tour, will be a once-in-a-life-time experience, marked by a dinner at the World’s Best Restaurant – Noma in Denmark – as named by the S. Pellegrino Awards.
The party celebrated the launch of the F&TC’s delicious guided journeys around the world, allowing travellers to experience their destinations in the most authentic way – through food. Involved in all things yummy, the company also offers restaurant consulting, cheese and wine workshops, travel blogs, travel advice, and very soon, cooking classes in its Melbourne-based cooking school.
Guests of the launch, along with MC Ben O’Donoghue, enjoyed cheese and wine matching workshops and feasted on Danish canapés. Denmark House was a fitting venue for the company’s inaugural itinerary due to roam through Finland, Sweden, Norway, Iceland and the Faroe Islands, topped off with an unmatchable dining experience at Noma in Denmark. The restaurant seats just 14, but after some persuasion from Greg, the exclusive diner has agreed to cater to a group of 15. Needless to say, there are only four places left!
Having friends with such culinary clout has proved to have serious benefits – Greg and Kim have kindly offered 10% off the tour price to anyone who mentions my name when booking
