The culture in Japan and in Denmark both pay attention to the simple and functional, an approach that has influenced the respective cultures gastronomy through the past decade. To celebrate this similarity between the two cultures, Momiji will be a part of The People's Feast.

Momiji is an annual tribute to fall and the circle of life. At The People's Feast, Momiji honors the gifts nature brings us each fall and sets focus on the circle of life best seen through the leaves shifting colour.  

Momiji is a Japanese word for the red leaves on the Japanese maple, which are considered a sign of fall in Japan and the joy this season brings. Fall is an important season in Japan, as the neture is particularly beautiful.

In this zone there will be served Japanese food, Kaiseki Ryori-style. The main idea of Kaiseki Ryori is Omotenashi. Omotenashi means a complete focus on the well-being of the guest. A joyous feast will be served with many different dishes and alcohol, where the final dish consists of rice and soup. To be able to call a meal Kaiseki Ryori, there are some conditions that must be met; the season is reflected, ingredients originate from both air, earth and water, 4 approaches to cooking are represented: raw, boiled, steamed and fried, and the preparation of the ingredients highlights the taste and exterior. But most importantly, the guests feels the soul of the chef.  

The recognised and honored Japanese chef, Norio Azumaya, will lead all servings and invite the guests on a journey through the cold, hot, sweet, salt, and sour dishes, which creates a unique experience. Norio Azumaya is among the best chefs in Japan and has been cooking professionally since he was only 17 years old.
