Dinner in an 800 Year Old Danish Castle on the Ocean
The setting for dinner doesn't get much better than an 800 year old Danish castle on the edge of the ocean. What makes the experience even more extraordinary is that it's prepared by a chef who sources most of the ingredients for his celebrated tasting menus from the orchards, gardens, fields, rivers, and sea surrounding the castle.
Chef Claus Henriksen's menus are creative and whimsical yet never stray too far from the integrity of the ingredient itself. He offers an elegantly orchestrated tasting menu in the fine dining restaurant in one wing of the castle and more casual fare such as homemade sausages and vegetable salads in a cafe in the adjacent wing.
Either experience is worthy of remembrance and better yet, the restaurant is also a hotel which enables you to linger in the beautiful setting before finding your way up a set of ancient stairs to a room worthy of the royals who once called the place home.
Dragsholm Slot is only a two hour drive from the culinary hot spot of Copenhagen and more than worthy of the journey it takes to get there.
