Our tale begins with Karen Blixen's "Babette’s Feast": Babette is a french refugee, who agrees to work as a servant, in a religious family, in a conservative society. One day she wins the lottery and wants to pay back to the society that raised her, and offers to cook a French meal for them. Through fantastic food, she manages to create an almost euphoric vibe, which loosens up the pressured and conservative mood.
For more than 30 years the founders of Restaurant ‘Babette’, Vivi and Henrik catered to parties, from the intimate dinner in private, to huge parties with more than 3.000 people - but no matter the size they have always been known for precision, humility, stability and great hospitality. As a restaurant Babette has been awarded 'Restaurant of the year' two times and has been a gastronomic flagship at the danish food stage for decades.
Babette the servant chose to prioritize one last perfect meal to her guests. As do we. Therefore we are taking the Babette name on a new journey. A journey that isn't confined by the standards of a restaurant, but a journey which is tailored to the individual host or guest's needs.
Precision, humility, craftsmanship and great hospitality will continue to follow Babette into your dining room, garden etc.
