Innovative tradition.

 

Taste the Faroes and its seasons through local produce.

ABOUT KOKS

At the heart of KOKS is the culinary coquetry of Poul Andrias Ziska. As KOKS’ head chef he masters the artistry of distilling taste and smell from the Faroese landscape, combining them in exquisite dishes. The palate is local, uncompromisingly Faroese.

 

The young avant-gardes at KOKS use Faroese produce, both coarse and fine, ancient and modern, always keeping an eye on sustainability, leaving the hills that bring forth the good fruit to flourish.

 

Rather than chasing the novel for its own sake, every effort is put into exploring the ancient practices – drying, fermenting, salting and smoking.

 

KOKS follows the seasons and what they bring forth, transforming ancient culinary tradition into modern delicacies.

 

The simple and pure, what is fresh and traditional characterises KOKS.

PRODUCE AND COOKING

As far as possible KOKS uses Faroese produce. What is not locally available is sourced from the other Nordic countries. Our produce is drawn from wild sea, seabed swept clean by strong currents, surf-washed seaweed forests and steep green-carpeted hills.

 

At first the selection seems meagre, but an unexpected diversity is found in the produce’s exceptional quality. What grows in this cool climate grows slowly and takes its time to ripen. The result is an exceptionally rich taste—a difference even the untrained palate can notice.

 

Our chefs know how to treat local meat and fish, both fresh and ræst (a unique local method of fermentation). They understand ræst, how the flavour is best developed and how to incorporate it in new dishes.

WINE

At KOKS you will both find a well-stocked wine cellar and loft.

 

Over the years we have collected a large and diverse collection of excellent wines from around the world.

 

Guiding you through our selection, our sommelier, Karin Visth, will help you match the right wine to every dish.

 

Your evening at KOKS can end with a glass in the wine cellar. You can also rent the cellar for your own private party. In the cellar you can have your own private wine tasting, learn about wine or combine rare wines with unique dishes from our kitchen.
