We made a publication. It folds out into a lovely poster and includes a veal heart recipe from a Noma chef, a terrific cocktail from one of the city’s best bartenders, and a personal essay from Relæ‘s Christian Puglisi detailing the challenges of his restaurant’s first winter.
It also features several exquisite illustrations from Sine Jensen. Sine works from photographic source material and has a delicate, almost ethereal line. She’s picking up regular commissions now and she deserves all the success that is sure to come her way.
I should also mention that we were hugely inspired by Simon Roche’s publication The Radio Post. So inspired in fact that when it came to layout and folding technique, there was only one man we wanted to work with. Thankfully he agreed and we’re so happy he did.
We printed 500 of these. I doubt we’ll sell more than a few dozen but that doesn’t worry us unduly. It’s a social object, I guess. We’ll sell some, give some away, and see where it leads us next.
If you’d like a copy and you’re in Copenhagen, you can pick it up at Ved Stranden 10. If you’re outside Denmark, we’ll be setting up PayPal over the weekend so please check in over at cphmeal.com over the next few days.
