Feels Like Heaven

I’ve decided to take a short break from posting cake recipes and instead pay tribute this time to a place I love, namely, Falsled Kro. For my birthday this Spring, Mr. Foody surprised me with a stay at this amazing Danish inn. Falsled Kro is situated in the South Western part of the beautiful Danish island of Funen, also known as the garden of Denmark, which is about a 2 hour drive from where we live in Copenhagen.

The experience of staying here is nothing but magical – everything, and I mean everything, is perfect. It has just the right balance of comfort, style, homeliness, good service and, not least, great food! During our stay we opted for the Almanac menu, which is based on the best ingredients of the season, either from local, specially selected producers or from the Inn’s own abundant garden. I hope the pictures below give a little taste of what this is all about.

Himself, enjoying the afternoon coffee

One of the many treats served with the afternoon coffee – dreamy caramel, topped with lightly whipped cream and cocoa nibs

Blooms on the chives in the ever-expanding herb garden

The dining room which looks out onto the luscious grounds and Helnæs Bay

And not just any tonic…

A fun appetiser, nick-named ‘lollipops’ – this one is a piece of cucumber, pickled in beetroot and topped with crispy crackling

Our stay coincided with asparagus season at its best – this dish was a mix of white and green asparagus from local Torup Bakkegård (farm) with poached Quail eggs and an asparagus froth

Last shot before daylight diminished – breaded turbot with broad beans, bacon, spring onion and a ‘snow’ of dairy cream

Breakfast wasn’t bad either ;)

      Yes, it was quite a unique appetiser. Now I just need to win the lottery so that I can go back there more often ;)
