Denmark to get a new gastronomy academy
In recent years, Denmark has become one of the leading countries in the field of gastronomy. According to the ministry for the environment and food, a quarter of the tourists that come to Denmark put food experiences, restaurant visits or gastronomy as a reason for choosing to visit the country. Part of the plan includes launching a gastronomy academy in Denmark – with the aim of promoting gastronomic innovation and attracting international star chefs. Overall the plan includes seven initiatives which in addition to the gastro-academy, include funds being allocated for concentrated marketing, culinary diplomacy, export promotion, a gastronomic travel team, culinary development and a World Food Summit. The seven initiatives are based on recommendations submitted by the Team Gastro group to the government in February 2018.
