Today, Princess Marie, as Patron, opened the Copenhagen Cooking & Food Festival in Copenhagen. The Festival will officially start tomorrow and Marie will visit its stands and meet with the exhibitors on Sunday. It is the first time that Marie will attend the festival twice.
This year’s edition marks the second year of the new CCFF. Indeed, this new version of the festival was created in 2016 when the original festival ‘Copenhagen Cooking’ decided to collaborate with the Food Organization of Denmark. Since Marie was Patron of Copenhagen Cooking since 2011, she became a Patron of the CCFF. This is the sixth time she visited the Festival (2011, 2012, 2014,2015,2016).
The festival aims to promote nordic gastronomy , specially Denmark’s. Around 100.000 visitors participates each year according to the festival. Princess Marie’s growing involvement with the festival, as shown by her visiting the festival twice, makes sense since one of her main causes is fighting against food waste and promoting healthy cooking as well as nordic gastronomy (In her Point de Vue interview last June , she talked a lot about Danish food).
The festival will start tomorrow and lasts until August 27th. There are a lot of different events each day, both for adults and children and Marie said she looks forward to discovering new food. She also said in her speech that as a French person who moved to Denmark, she can say that Denmark’s cuisine is one of the best and can easily match France’s gastronomy. You can read it here.
For this event, Marie wore an Alberta Ferretti dress first worn in 2012 with Jimmy Choo black pumps first worn in 2015. (Unfortunately, I can’t publish the photos where you can see Marie’s shoes)
She also wore her Christine Hvelplund ring and earrings and an old black UFO bag she owns since 2007.
In connection to this event, it was also announced that Princess Marie is now the Patron of the ‘Better Food for More People’ Summit. The summit will take place in Copenhagen next Thursday (24th) and Marie will take part in several meetings before attending the reception. This will be the second edition of the Summit, Princess Marie only attended the reception last year.
