Dining Impossible: A New Beginning And Nordic Adventure At The Faroe Islands

The international culinary affair Dining Impossible returns, and this time the stakes are high. A four day grand dinner party at the most remote foodie destination in the world.

Amazing food, the most impressive natural settings and a lesson on real sustainability achieved by tradition and Nordic culture. Helicopters, speedboats and a vintage sail ship. Fresh seafood en masse, a lot of great wines and a cave concert on water. Brutal and traditional dining, a dinner crawl and the most remote fine dining restaurant in the world. This is what Dining Impossible promises for its 29th edition, this time in the distant Faroe Islands on 4-7th of August.

This time around an exclusive group of 16-20 guests, hosted by Dining Impossible’s creator, culinary ambassador Kristian Brask Thomsen, will enjoy a once in a lifetime experience that will take them to one of the most isolated food destinations of the year, the Faroe Islands in the kingdom of Denmark. A unique archipelago where visitors will find the most cinematic views, exciting products, Nordic history and Viking tales.

The journey begins with a casual welcome diner party to enjoy the world’s best lamb serving at Áarstova. The second day includes a helicopter tour of the archipelago, an open sky lunch in nature that will display the best of local cuisine, Nordic flavours and fermented goodies, and what the host calls brutal dining.  

“In a private location somewhere in the Faroes, there is an eccentric chef who prepares super fresh, alive sea products like locals did centuries ago. This one is not for the faint hearted. That night, and this whole experience is for the real and most adventurous foodies in the world”, explains Kristian Brask Thomsen.

The third day, guests will spend the day at sea and experience the Faroe Island from a two-mast vintage schooner, complete with a on-board lunch by the hand of Poul Andrias Ziska, Chef of the two Michelin Star (and the new green Michelin star) restaurant Koks. To spark up the appetite before the old town restaurant crawl, guests will enjoy an acoustic concert inside a cave, because music is also food for the soul.

The last day will start up quiet, the calm before the storm. Hiking, walks in nature and some much needed rest before what promises to be the grand finale, an all-in night at Koks where the restaurant, closed entirely for the group, will showcase their contemporary micro seasonal haute cuisine. This is tradition and respect for local products taken to the next level. Lamb, fish, seaweed, shellfish and potatoes are only a few of the ingredients used to achieve this new and exciting take on Faroese cuisine. The ending of the adventure? A Nordic party with sunlight, at night.

Much has been said about the changes that this past year would bring to traveling, and most of all to fine dining, but the reality of it is that now that vaccines are starting to work, borders are opening up and kitchens are lighting the fire again, the public is simply ready to jump into adventures like the ones they never dared to do before. This one, is the perfect one to give Covid the middle finger and live life to the fullest.
