Dinner with all the harbingers of spring

Wednesday, Wednesday, April 24, 2013

On Tuesday, April 16, the second dinner was held in connection with the food network, the King's Pantry. The 120 tickets that were sold for the event went in 10 minutes, which, to the delight of the organizers and the network members, shows a continuing great interest for the project. The good ingredients were, as at the last dinner, prepared by chef Rasmus Kirk Henriksen from Restaurant Teglværksskoven, and the beverages came from Ørbæk Brewery.
