Thursday night in Copenhagen saw the White Guide Awards revelation of Restaurant Geranium as the winner of “The Best Food Experience of the Year”.

In light of their otherworldly experience, White Guide proclaimed: “With the outmost technical precision they deliver a visual spectacular and astonishing dining experience for the taste buds. There is a light, lucid freshness which covers all the senses, perfectly orchestrated with an ability to take guests on a culinary journey through an impressive arsenal of ingredients and flavours without satiating neither body or mind.”

This new accolade is yet another honour on Geranium’s trail of success, being awarded “Best Restaurant of the Year” in Denmark by The Danish Dining Guide back in October, and The Nordic Prize “Best Nordic Restaurant” this February.

Besides being home to Bocuse d’Or Gold Legend Rasmus Kofoed, Restaurant Geranium received its second Michelin star within only two years in early 2013, as well as being recognised on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants List.



 This was the first time White Guide was announced in Denmark, as it has been in Sweden for the past 10 years, where the guide, in 2004, became a fusion between two Swedish restaurant guides.

The interesting thing about this new-to-Denmark-guide is that it’s independent; the critics visit the restaurants secretly and rate more than 260 restaurants all over the country, thereby also including the province.

It’s alike to Guide Michelin. However, contrary to Michelin, White Guide writes long reviews on the restaurants so that both the reader, as well as the restaurateur, chef and sommelier, understand the ratings – or at least get a reasonable explanation of them. At the same time, White Guide ranks the restaurants like W50B does.
