THE FOOD HOUSE – COOKING IN HISTORICAL KITCHENS

THE FOOD HOUSE offers more than just experiencing the history of food. Course participants are given the opportunity to taste, smell and literally chop their way through history when they sign up for one of our many cookery courses and events.

 

THE FOOD HOUSE is an unusual museum experience in which visitors go on a journey into the history of food and cook in four authentic kitchens:

 

a hearth kitchen from the 17th century, a woodstove kitchen from the 1880s, a kitchen from World War II and the flowery and brown/orange kitchen from the 1960s/70s.

 

Many of the raw ingredients we use for our cookery classes and events are picked in the museum’s agricultural botanical gardens where  the old Danish varieties of fruit, vegetables and herbs are grown. When THE FOOD HOUSE is not organising events, the kitchens are open to the general public.

BOOK AN EVENT AT THE FOOD HOUSE

THE FOOD HOUSE is a fantastic destination for a corporate event, a club daytrip or an active and fun day out culminating in an evening meal.

 

Our historical kitchens offer cookery courses to businesses, clubs and associations and other large groups. Course participants are given a knife and expert tuition – and all events conclude with an evening meal where participants eat the food they have prepared.

 

All cookery courses are tailored to your requirements.

WHAT OUR VISITORS SAY

5 out of 5 stars

We sent eight expectant girls off on a cookery course on Thursday, 26 October. The girls had a great afternoon and evening of exciting taste discovery. The girls prepared the food themselves – and picked vegetables and herbs in the museum garden – under the expert guidance of the in-house ‘master chef’.

Thank you to the lovely staff for a great experience in fantastic surroundings!

We can highly recommend it.”

– Thea Eva Svankjær on the Historical Cookery Class for Children (aged 7-12): where does food come from?, October 2017

Everyone should learn about this – whether they are young or old.”

– Claus Bech Andersen speaking to Radio P4 East Jutland about the Rethink Christmas Food cookery class, December 2017

Being taught how to bone a leg from a red deer living wild in Djursland was a great experience.

And then helping to prepare the meat under the expert supervision of star chef Per Mandrup. Not to mention the pleasure of eating the five-course luxury game menu afterwards… followed by incredible pancakes.
