The Orangery

In a French-Turkish alliance, Francis and Umut are fighting for a common goal: to get the Danes to (re)discover the legumes and pave the way for more taste and quality, more sustainability and better health. By combining their different cultures and expertise, Francis and Umut create an uplifting and unpretentious room filled with food enthusiasm, sublime cooking, inspiring stories, and lots of humour.

Join Umut and Francis on a culinary adventure where they explore how legumes and vegetables can be used. We are going from Mesopotamia, up through Europe and to Denmark, where for mysterious reasons the legume has been forgotten in the food culture - but Umut and Francis now want to change that!

On this part of the journey, we will take a trip with Francis and Umut to the sweet kitchen - because legumes are not only brilliant in savoury dishes. With classic, French cooking skills and sweet memories of the best dessert experiences, Francis and Umut will in the kitchen show us the great potential legumes hold.

Umut and Francis will invite someone from the audience on stage, where together they will make the most delicious dessert: a French chocolate cake, a homemade ice cream and a delicious crumble - all made from the wonderful legumes.

Go on a journey and taste a bit of France, when at the end there will be small samples of the delicious dessert.
