If you enjoy food and live in Copenhagen, then chances are Claus Meyer will play a part in your diet one way or the other.
A lazy comparison would be to say he’s Denmark’s answer to Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall but of course a comparison like that only goes so far. To me, he’s the guy who has a string of good high street delis and bakeries, co-founded the world’s best restaurant Noma, hosts the Apple Flower Festival at his orchard on a tiny island, and wrote a couple of our favourite cookbooks. Yes, you could say he knows what he’s doing.
Anyway, I digress. From his delis, you can buy a ready-made picnic, filled with tasty boxes of food ready for you to carry to wherever you want to lay your blanket. Tonight, our wonderful friend Trine (who Dorte went to school with), treated us to a picnic box each and we took the Rosé wine along. We were all stuffed at the end of it – the hummus, the bread, the beef, the pesto chicken, the prawn salad – all delicious. And a fantastic way to spend a summer’s evening, even if the rain was threatening the whole time. We pitched up at Søndermarken (somewhere I’ve recommended before), grabbed a table and benches, took Peanut off the lead, and kicked back to enjoy the meal.
