Editor Rebecca Burr on the inclusion of Aarhus and Malmö in the Nordic Cities guide:
“We are excited to be able to share with our readers our recommendations for restaurants and hotels in these two cities. The new wave of Scandinavian kitchens has really raised the bar in this part of the world. Aarhus is a vibrant city with a diverse gastronomy, whilst the gloriously fertile region of Skåne puts a wealth of top quality produce on Malmö’s doorstep.”
In this new guide, Michelin has awarded a second Michelin star to a | o | c in Copenhagen. In their press release Michelin describes chef Søren Selin's cooking as follows: "Søren Selin serves playful, original cooking with harmonious flavours and a Danish heart."
