17 stars to Copenhagen sets a new Michelin record
Copenhagen has won 17 Michelin stars for 15 of its restaurants in the new ’Main Cities of Europe’ guide, which hits the streets today. That is more than last year, when the Danish capital won 15 stars. It is also rumoured that Michelin will publish an all-new, Nordic guide focussing on Denmark and the North.

Michelin’s ’Main Cities of Europe 2014’ guide has just been announced, awarding its coveted stars to restaurants in a number of European capitals. Once again, Copenhagen has set a new record with 17 Michelin stars divided among 15 restaurants in and around the capital - compared to 15 stars to 13 restaurants last year. As well as the prestigious stars, Copenhagen has been awarded 12 Bib Gourmands, given to good restaurants with affordable prices.

As well as beating its own record from 2013, Copenhagen is once again well ahead of the other Scandinavian capitals this year, maintaining its position as the Nordic region’s gastronomic capital.

The other major news of the day is the announcement of a new Nordic Michelin guide, dedicated to Denmark and the other Scandinavian countries. The publication of the guide comes following weeks of speculation, started by the Swedish gastro-publication, Restaurangvärlden, which first broke the story in early February.

Previously, the Michelin guide has not awarded stars to restaurants in Scandinavian cities with fewer than 500,000 residents, but that all changes next year with the ‘Michelin Guide Nordic’, which also includes restaurants in smaller cities.

The new Michelin stars and guides augment an already packed gastro calendar in the Danish capital. The Copenhagen Cooking food festival, which is the largest of its kind in Northern Europe, takes place for the tenth time this summer.

The organisers of Copenhagen Cooking are delighted with the many stars that now shine on the city’s restaurant scene.

“We are already in the process of planning the most ambitious festival programme ever with over 150 unique events for the summer edition of Copenhagen Cooking. The fact that Copenhagen continues to have a major impact internationally in the Michelin guide confirms that the city has huge potential when it comes to gastronomy and, of course, is a major boost for us,” says Lasse Friberg Bilstrup, development manager at Copenhagen Cooking.
