300 people sharing meals at a food diversity Potluck dinner in Copenhagen

For the first time a Potluck dinner is arranged in Copenhagen ahead of the international food summit World Food Summit 2017 – Better Food for More People. Join Trine Hahnemann and her culinary partners at the dinner Wednesday 23 of August.

300 people will come to a potluck dinner each with a dish of their own and talk about food. What is it, how does it taste – what is the history behind? What are the ingredients – is the food local? All 300 participants will be seated at long tables and organised in smaller groups.

The aim is to present different food from all over the world and to raise a debate and discussion among the people about how to ensure that food still can be based on diversity and good commodities. This knowledge is essential to inspire the movement Better Food for More People so more people get inspired to use gastronomy as a tool for their everyday food and choices.

When you have the chance to meet other people though food there is a venue, where you become curious to the unknown – and in that context you will be open for new ideas and knowhow.

Food Diversity
One of the themes at the World Food Summit – Better Food for More People is focusing on Food Diversity. The dialog and ideas from the Potluck is supposed to fill in here. Some of the participants from the summit will participate in the Potluck dinner together with the Danish Minister for Environment and Food, Dr. Esben Lunde Larsen.

«Culinary diversity is one of four themes at the summit. The meal can have a hard time in the busy weekdays. Food Diversity Potluck creates an everyday community that provides room for dialogue and diversity», says the Danish Minister for Environment and Food, Dr. Esben Lunde Larsen.

The Potluck is organized i collaboration between Send Flere Krydderier, Madkulturen, Hahnemanns Køkken and the Danish Ministry of Environment and Food.
