Michael Larsen
Ever since he was a child, Michael Larsen has gathered wild foods to use in the kitchen. To him, quality and taste is key and he is always on the lookout for new flavours and ideas. For the past six years, he has been foraging for Noma as well as other reputable restaurants and has inspired chefs to use local ingredients in new ways. Michael will take the participants on a foraging expedition to introduce them to the natural pantry and to new ways of using wild foods such as moss, herbs and berries.

Mikkel Friis-Holm
Many chocolate manufactures can be said to work with their chocolate from bean to bar, but few do it as meticulously as Mikkel Friis-Holm. His company has gained international recognition over the years and many of his chocolates have been awarded several times at the International Chocolate Awards. Based on his own experience with chocolate production, Mikkel will be teaching participants about the process from evaluating the cacao beans to producing their own chocolate – from bean to bar.

Milton Abel
An accomplished musician and actor, Milton Abel first started working in the kitchen as a ”side gig”. But it soon turned into a passion, and Milton has continued to develop his pastry and dessert skills ever since, working at such prominent restaurants as Per Se in New York, The French Laundry in California, Noma and Amass in Copenhagen. He will be sharing his passion with the participants, guiding them in creating creative and innovative dessert recipes.


There are no formal admission requirements. However, we are looking for participants who are passionate about chocolate and want to explore the craft of cacao and chocolate.
