Embassy of Denmark and Daelim Museum come together for final Delicious Denmark event

10.11.2015  11:00

The workshop was a unique collaboration between the embassy and Daelim Museum in relation to the museum’s current exhibition showcasing the work of Danish fashion designer Henrik Vibskov, which brought together the embassy’s initiative to promote Danish culture through cooking and the museum’s D PASS workshop format.

Both the embassy and the museum reported the two workshops a great success, with reservations being booked full far early in advance and attended by almost 70 people total. Guests were warmly welcomed by the Danish Ambassador Thomas Lehmann, who was joined by his spouse Jule Lehmann in sitting with the guests and cooking together. During the workshop guests were given the opportunity to make 7 different types of Danish open sandwiches and canapes under the guidance and demonstration of a Danish chef flown to Korea for the workshop. 

The embassy’s DELICIOUS DENMARK cooking event series, that also involved two events at the Danish home cooking studio "Mad & Hygge" in Seoul, was launched following the success of the ‘Nordic Food Promotion’ held earlier this September, which brought the respective embassies of Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden together for a B2B event aimed at promoting Nordic capabilities and high standards in food production and ingredients.
