Confession...I LOVE food tours. I try to take one in every city I visit. As someone that tends to travel solo, its a great way to meet new like-minded foodie people and get to know the real story behind a city's cuisine. When it became clear that I wasn't going to get off of the waitlist for lunch or dinner at Noma, I decided the next best thing would be to take a food tour to learn all about Nordic cuisine. After reading a fellow blogger's recap about her tour with Copenhagen Foodtours, I signed up for their four hour "Culinary Experience" tour. Our guide was fantastic and I learned a ton of new things about Nordic cuisine.
After the cooking retreat in northern Spain and an island getaway to Menorca, I wanted to branch out from Spain and visit an area of Europe that would have a completely different vibe. Since I had never been to any Nordic countries, I found a cheap flight and decided on Denmark and Sweden (more on Sweden later).
