short of praise for his staff, who he says are some of the best in the world, mostly because of the constant change the restaurant brings. The chefs have to reconstruct Michelin dishes from around the world, and have often been commended by food critics on the exceptional level of quality of the dishes, as high as those in the original restaurant. Though you are highly unlikely to find all the staff suddenly playing various instruments, Longhi describes his restaurant as more of an orchestra than a restaurant: the chefs are artists while the restaurant is like a theatre or concert hall. Things are constantly changing, and despite the dishes coming from radically different countries and traditions, they all fit together under the same roof, just like different pieces of music would during a concert. Moving from dish to dish is like a jump from one taste to the other, but with a common thread running through them all, creating a magical taste sensation that cannot be experienced anywhere else in Europe.

New places, new themes If you are not going to Aarhus this summer, but instead heading to the capital of Denmark, Copenhagen, it is still possible to try some of the dishes created by the Nordisk Spisehus chefs, as well as some of the best smørrebrød in Denmark, in the sister restaurant, Kähler, set in the beautiful Tivoli Gardens. The restaurant is the only design restaurant in Copenhagen and combines traditional Danish ceramics with delicious food. Nevertheless, if you are looking for the full Michelin taste sensation, Aarhus is the place to be this summer. The current theme, Tokyo & Barcelona, will run until the end of August, when the restaurant again changes the dishes and the interiors to suit a new theme, this time focusing on the Nordic and Scandinavian regions. With dishes arriving from Oslo, Stockholm and Helsinki, this is bound to be yet another exciting theme, set to pleasure all the senses. It will also give you the opportunity to try many of the

tastes and dishes that have made Nordic food stand out over the last couple of years. A visit to Nordisk Spisehus is bound to be an unforgettable experience, and one you will tell friends and family about for years to come. It is something you cannot experience anywhere else in Europe, and moreover, if you are not planning on going to Barcelona and Tokyo this summer, it is a great opportunity to get a taste of both cities. Nordisk Spisehus is dedicated to giving you the absolute best experience you could have, on a level few other restaurants ever go near. Go there, be amazed, and leave with a smile on your face and a holiday memory to be cherished forever. For more information, please visit: Nordisk Spisehus: Kähler Tivoli:
