You're tastier than ever, and you deserve your own book.
A big fat coffee-table book, full of stories about our favourite cocktail bars, bakeries, greasy late-night munchies, rooftop farms, beekeepers, coffee shops, traditional Danish eateries, soup kitchens, high-end restaurants, pizzerias and wineries in Copenhagen.
Unless you live under a rock, you've probably noticed that Copenhagen's food scene has exploded over the past few years.
It's not only the world famous new nordic restaurants fuelling the explosion. It's just as much the hole-in-the-wall soup kitchen in an ice cream shop, the ice cream shop where there are no freezers (but how?!), the legendary hotdog vendor and his crazy sauces, the guys growing oyster mushrooms out of coffee, the city bees making honey, and so on.
Together they form the bigger story of a food scene that has grown increasingly varied and wild. We call it madness ("mad" is also Danish for "food").
In our book, we chronicle and celebrate it, via portraits, personal stories, essays and a few recipes thrown in for good measure.
Mad About Copenhagen
We are a small team of food nerds who have been writing about Copenhagen’s food scene since 2014.
We began by sharing our recommendations for places to eat and drink on Instagram (@madaboutcopenhagen). By 2016, our recommendations had gotten pretty popular, so we decided to take our Mad baby to the next level. We formed a little team, and set out to do a bunch of different projects, all of which involve food, people and Copenhagen. This book is one of them.
N.B. We do not do sponsored posts on our Instagram or website, nor can any restaurant, bar or café buy their way into our book.
What is in the book
We have chosen 50 places for the book.
The places we've chosen are a representative snapshot of the city's food scene today, a living breathing entity, captured in 2018, preserved forever more in the pages of this book.
How we'll spend the money
Our team is ready to go! The money we raise via this Kickstarter campaign will mainly go towards the actual printing and binding of the books.
The more money we raise, the more books we can print (and the nicer we can make them).
Your book should be ready and delivered to your doorstep in late September/early October 2018, just in time for Christmas!
Types of rewards
Without you this wouldn't be possible, and we're so thankful for your support. Whichever reward you choose, we'll put Your Name in The Book, on the golden pages dedicated to our Kickstarter backers.
1. The Love
Just want to see this project happen? Contribute as little or as much as you like, without asking for anything in return. You will get your name in the book though!
2. The Poster
Some of you have been asking if you can buy our campaign poster. Well, ok then!
3. The Bag
Support the project and get your hands on some Mad merchandise whilst you're at it. Or go for The Book + The Bag.
4. The Book
That's why we're here isn't it? When we realised how much money we need to publish a book (a lot), we thought what better a way to make it happen than to give you a chance to pre-order it before it gets printed.
You can also order 2 x The Book or 4 x The Book and get a little discount. As well as that, we have some larger discounts for those in the book-selling business - take a look at 10 x The Book and 20 x The Book. All prices include VAT.
5. The Book + Something Edible From The Book
Bring your reading experience to life and go out and sample one of the goodies in the book. The people and places we are writing about in the book have donated food and drink as their way of supporting this project.
If you order one of these rewards, then we'll include a little voucher for an ice cream/soup/bao/etc, which you'll get when you get your book.
If you simply can't choose and you want it all, go for The Book + All The Food for 2 People.
Risks and challenges
Making a book is a process that involves a lot of different players - photographers, writers, designers, illustrators, proof-readers, printers, binders, etc.
We have a talented team of people ready to make this the best book to ever land on your shelves, and we're pretty sure we can have your books delivered to you in October, if not before.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
