The Danish Japanese Connection: Umami in Copenhagen

The executive chef at Umami, Copenhagen, has been named winner of World Sushi Cup – beating local talent at the event in Tokyo as well as sushi masters from around the globe. Champion chef Pepi Anevski prides himself on using traditional techniques, honed in Tokyo. “Good sushi all about local, seasonal ingredients – just as the traditional Danish smørrebrød is,” says Anevski, “so Danes and the Japanese have more in common than you might think.” Umami also serves French-Japanese fusion and boasts an extensive cocktail menu. A favorite with city hipsters.
