Master chef Frede and souchef Jonathan preparing langusome for dinner together with a fantastic lobster consume, burnt cauliflower and lentils ragout.

EGRIP Michelin Restaurant

To be at EGRIP is like eating at a Michelin restaurant two times a day. Our master chef Frede is simply spoiling us by preparing the most fantastic food for lunch and dinner. Today Jonathan was his souchef. Dinner tonight was langusome with lobster consume, burnt cauliflower and lentils ragout– with fresh baked bread off course. Dessert was vanilla ice cream with rum truffles. EGRIP’ers all agree that this at least at Michelin level. Perhaps the Michelin jury would like to come and test the food (9 August)?
