Adam Aamann is the host of the Danish national food TV-show Madmagasinet, a food consultant to other successful restaurateurs, author of several cookbooks, the owner of Aamann’s Establishment – a lunch diner with a more bodega-like feel, a jam-packed Aamann’s CPH Airport and an 80,00 square feet event and conference facility, which has hosted everything from fashion shows and product launches to weddings and large company parties.
Adam Aamann’s great success shows that the food revolution of Denmark – and the entire Nordic region – goes far beyond luxury kitchens. Aamann’s open sandwiches can easily be described as gourmet. This is why Aamann received the 2007 “Gastronomic Academy Honorary Award” for his efforts to make open sandwiches into a culinary craftsmanship.
His innovative interpretations of Danish food culture inspired a rediscovery of smørrebrød, with several top chefs picking up the tradition.
It has progressed to the point where traditional lunch is one of the most sought-after experiences in Copenhagen. So popular that the Michelin guide now also recommends these lunch restaurants in their prestigious guide. Adam Aamann was the culinary pick to present the story of Danish food culture at the world exhibition in Shanghai.
