Another major highlight of being in Copenhagen was discovering Matt Orlando’s Amass Restaurant. At a much lighter price tag and smaller course menu we found this experience to be more palatable amongst some of us. This time, I also managed to meet the man himself! Suffice to say, this is a place we would go back again and again.

You may have gathered by now, food and wine is our primary interest wherever we go but food is first and foremost our initial trigger to venture anywhere. Firstly the menu, is there anything we would like to eat and if so, surely there would be wine to accompany the fare on offer.
