Restaurant Experience - Koks, Faroe Islands
The New Yorker called it ‘the most remote foodie destination’ and indeed you would need to make a precise travel plan to get there. In all fairness, not many foodies would probably end up in Faroe Islands before Koks was awarded its’ first Michelin Star. The archipelago of breathtakingly beautiful Danish islands, scattered somewhere half way between Iceland and Scottish Orkneys, has little to offer other than unforgettable hiking and picturesque landscapes. Poul Andrias Ziska changed this when he started serving his sleek plates of local shellfish and specialities that might make unadventurous diners’ stomach crunch. His boldness, authenticity, honesty and respectful approach to food quickly made him famous. Read the great review of the experience published in New Yorker here.
