With a sharp business plan, a franchise-friendly concept and crowdfunded on Kickstarter, MadMad Madbodega sounds like something dreamt up by a Millennial business school graduate and so it is. It’s Nordic fare, made from sustainable, ecological ingredients in a no-waste manner, and the idea comes from two American chicks who wanted to stay in Copenhagen after finishing their MBAs.

Daring, you might say – or wide-eyed – but the two Yanks at least had the wherewithal to stay clear of the kitchen themselves. There you’ll find Martin Guf, a Danish TV chef, who’s making their somewhat naïve plan look rather genius. Full of attitude and a full set of skills to back it up, he’s performing a bit of culinary wizardry: It might be Nordic and it might be organic but this feels like comfort food. Mad mad magic.

Hitting the elusive sweet spot where both your conscience and belly are left happy, this little startup experiment might actually be on to something. Cosy and informal, it’s great for a laid-back foodie treat (do book, especially for the Sundays roasts). Just note that all drinks are organic, too. Stick to craft beer or cocktails (the organic soda used for mixing isn’t bad) if you aren’t yet a biodynamic wine convert.
