Denmark Chapitre 2019
Bornholm, August 23-24, 2019
Welcome to Bornholm, the sunshine island!

The Bailliage of Denmark welcomes you to our 2019 Chapitre which will take place on the ‘Sunshine Island’ of Bornholm, a small island in the Baltic Sea some 100 kms south of Sweden.

Some of Denmark’s most acclaimed local producers of meat, other fresh food produce, distillates and dairy products are recognized internationally and are a must-try when visiting this remote island.

Due to its geographical location with cold winters and long warm summers, this scenic and sunny island has become home to a vibrant gastronomic scene. A new generation of talented chefs has put Bornholm and its locally-produced products on the gastronomical map. So much so that today Bornholm can boast, amongst others, a Michelin star restaurant and several “Bib Gourmand” restaurants according to the Michelin Guide.

The programme for the Chapitre will include two culinary sightseeing tours and visiting some key gastronomical locations on the island, namely a traditional smokehouse, an oil mill, a butcher, local brewery, Farmers’ market hall and local farmhouse shop.

The Welcome Dinner on Friday has been specially arranged to take place at Christianshøjkroen, the award-winning traditional old inn.

The Induction Ceremony on Saturday will - very exceptionally - take place inside the famous Round Church of Østerlars which dates back to 1160 … even before the origin of the Chaîne!

The Gala Dinner will take place at Restaurant Pony at Nordlandet, a beautiful location among the cliffs facing the vast Baltic Sea. The resident Chef de Cuisine, Anne Bruun Jessen, is a high profile award-winning female chef. The hotel and restaurant is owned and operated by the same people as for the Michelin restaurants Kadeau Bornholm (1 star) and Kadeau Copenhagen (2 stars).
