KOKS wins the Faroe Islands’ first Michelin star

Since opening its doors in 2011, restaurant KOKS has won the hearts of food lovers in the Faroe Islands and beyond.

Now six years on, it has won the ultimate foodie accolade – its first Michelin star, propelling it onto the world stage of top dining experiences. KOKS is the first restaurant in the Faroe Islands, which has a population of 50,000, to receive a Michelin star.

Run by 26-year-old Faroese chef Poul Andrias Ziska, KOKS focuses on innovative traditional Faroese food, giving its guests the chance to taste the Faroes and its seasons through local produce.

“At KOKS, our aim is to create the ultimate dining experience. An experience strongly influenced by our deep-rooted Faroese traditions and the remarkable local produce found at our doorstep. This is our strength, and often our job is simply to let the extraordinary produce speak for itself,” says Poul Andrias Ziska.

The young avant-gardes at KOKS use Faroese produce, both coarse and fine, ancient and modern, whilst ensuring that the gathering and consumption is sustainable. Rather than blazing new culinary trails, every effort is put into exploring the ancient Faroese practices of drying, fermenting, salting and smoking.

KOKS’ menu is determined by the various seasons and what they have to offer, transforming ancient culinary tradition into modern delicacies. Simple and pure, fresh and traditional.
