Paul goes West. Michelin chef Paul Cunningham from Copenhagen's starred restaurant, The Paul, will, from March 30 be taking over the helm at the idyllic inn Henne Kirkeby Kro, in the west of Denmark. I am looking most forward to the task, a kid in a sweet shop. I've always dreamt the idea of having a kitchen garden attached to a concept, now I have been given the chance. An acre or so of prime land has been cultivated over the past few years, now its time to take the garden, and my kitchen to new heights, says Paul Cunningham. Only a few hours from Copenhagen, Henne Kirkeby Kro lies a few miles from Denmark's west coast. The surrounding nature is truly fantastic, unspoilt. I have taken The Paul 'on the road' many times and have always been met with open arms whilst cooking in the west, happy I am indeed to be returning for this summer season. Paul continues - We will be bringing our warm souls to Henne, cooking simple honest dishes with beautiful local ingredients - we will create a real destination restaurant from Henne, contributing to the heart, passion and work that the Skouboe family have invested into Henne Kirkeby Kro from day one. My old pal Garrey Dawson, that I first met when he was leading Heston Blumenthal's kitchen at The Fat Duck it there too. He, together with his small team have created a wonderfully strong platform resulting in Henne Kirkeby Kro's success until now. We have spoken together often about the project, now is the right time to implement the next phase of Henne's growth. Owner Simon Skouboe - Paul Cunningham will be taking over the kitchen from Allan Poulsen. Allan has, over the past few years done wonders for Henne Kirkeby Kro. We are now very happy indeed that with Paul Cunningham and his team, we may continue to lift the inn's can gastronomic niveau, - looking good it is too...
