CHASING CLAUS: It's a MAD MAD World

It's a MAD MAD WORLD…
and it's happening in Copenhagen this weekend August 27-28, 2011.
This is no mere annual gathering of foodies in their finest wear sitting  at tables pontificating about the glorious light texture of some dessert. 

Welcome to real food for real people!

Not only does the word ‘mad’ mean food in Danish, it’s double entendre is a wonderful play on the crazed mayhem that will be experienced at this event.
This year’s theme is a play on the wild and organic palette pleaser of nature’s bounty…with PLANT Kingdom!

Get there:
by foot, by sea, by bus or by car….
but, get there!

Since children can do the darndest thing, here is a great workshop to both let out their creativity and play with their food!
At this Veggie Bling Workshop, kids will have the opportunity to make their own veggie jewelry or veggie ornament. It will be all about bringing out the silly creativity via the use of vegetables.
Children will be supervised as they use simple tools to make their little edible treasures.
Take a picture with your child and send it to MEYERS MADHUS for the competition to win a place on the Culinary Playgroup that is Claus’ cooking school for kids!
Winners will be announced on Facebook and in their newsletter.

And yes, event leftovers don't just become compost fodder. The mandate of this event ends with any remaining food items must be donated to humanitarian or cultural causes.
If you are in Denmark and especially, in the area of Copenhagen this weekend...I would highly recommend attending.
