During South by South West in Austin, stellar eatery Kadeau, which has its roots in the Danish island of Bornholm, will be opening its first pop-up restaurant in the USA. The opening will take place in conjunction with SAS and guests are promised an unforgettable Nordic barbecue experience that focuses on sustainability.
House of Scandinavia aims to always bring the best of Scandinavian food, wrapped in sustainable packaging. Partnering with the most sustainable, award-winning and leading restaurants in Scandinavia, consumers can experience a unique blend of fine dining at the House of Scandinavia (HOS). The platform at SXSW is no different; SAS has partnered with Kadeau – a 2 Michelin star restaurant serving a grill pop-up on site.
Pop-up restaurant “Boathouse Grill by Kadeau” will be managed by head chef and restaurant manager Anika Madsen. The menu is based on fermented ingredients from Bornholm, magical shellfish from Scandinavia, and vegetables grown locally in the Austin area.
“Our big initiative this year is our collaboration with Michelin-starred restaurant Kadeau, which will be serving up both lunch and dinner on site,” says Frank Otterbeck, Senior Project Leader at SAS.
The menu features seven lunch dishes, which will be served from Noon to 2 pm, and 11 dinner dishes, which will be served from 6.30 pm onwards.
“It’s a sustainable Nordic barbecue featuring local products from the Austin area, combined with Scandinavian produce, ingredients, and flavors from Bornholm. Guests shouldn’t expect to be served meat, the focus will instead be on seafood, fish, and vegetables.”
Kadeau is known for its unique flavors and its focus on quality and local produce.
“The way they prepare food in combination with the barbecue culture in Austin means that it will be a particularly interesting match. It’ll be a once in a lifetime experience,” promises Otterbeck.
HOS also serve a Scandinavian breakfast every morning between 8 am and 10 am in conjunction with Danish company Nordic Food Export.
“The breakfast has been very much appreciated in previous years. It’s a classic Scandinavian breakfast with bread, spreads, yoghurt, and fruit.”
