It’s not often you walk into a restaurant with two Michelin stars in a mansion and find that it smells just like home. But walk through the doors of AOC in Copenhagen and the smell of wood smoke and reduced bouillon of Jerusalem artichokes hits you like a double shot of aquavit. Result; an instant hunger-rousing welcome to anyone who loves good food.
