Finding your way to Kirksjabour is an adventure in itself and what translates onto Ziska's plates manages to capture something of the landscape as promised; a curious tastebud tapestry of sheepy-seaweed-grassiness. Having hiked over the mountain on a previous day, we took the 5v bus...More

Description
At the heart of KOKS is the culinary coquetry of Poul Andrias Ziska. As KOKS' head chef he masters the artistry of distilling taste and smell from the Faroese landscape, combining them in exquisite dishes. The palate is local, uncompromisingly Faroese. The young avant-gardes at KOKS use Faroese produce, both coarse and fine, ancient and modern, always keeping an eye on sustainability, leaving the hills that bring forth the good fruit to flourish. Rather than chasing the novel for its own sake, every effort is put into exploring the ancient practices - drying, fermenting, salting and smoking. KOKS follows the seasons and what they bring forth, transforming ancient culinary tradition into modern delicacies. The simple and pure, what is fresh and traditional characterises KOKS.
