KOKS awarded Faroe Islands’ first star from the Michelin Guide

KOKS in the Faroe Islands has been awarded a star, by the Michelin Guide Nordic Countries 2017 – the first ever to be given to a Faroese restaurant. 

René Redzepi has made the New Nordic Kitchen known throughout the world, and now KOKS Chef Poul Andrias Ziska represents the next generation.

The Faroe Islands, a collection of 18 islands in the North Atlantic, halfway between Iceland and Norway, are part of the Kingdom of Denmark.

Situated in Kirkjubøur, on the island of Streymoy, KOKS was founded by Leif Sørensen, one of the creators of the New Nordic Kitchen Manifesto, and is characterised by its commitment to the use of sustainable local products.

Ziska, born and raised in the Faroe Islands, took over the reins from Sørensen and, today – aged just 26 –produces dishes that ‘capture the Faroese landscape on a plate’, whilst always keeping an eye on sustainability. 

Every effort is put into exploring the ancient practices – drying, fermenting, salting and smoking.
