Charlotte Jul & Michael Museth
It is said that food brings people together like nothing else does. So it is the meal that is the centre of focus at Folkets Madhus (The People’s Food Court), which is a long-standing dream that has come true for butcher and chef Michael Museth. He has created a venue that has a sense of community. A community based on quality food prepared with love. Using the best seasonal ingredients. And a love and feeling of responsibility when it comes to passing on those kinds of skills, knowledge and good recipes. Both to the next generation and to the next guest.
Here, gastronomic passion blends with social togetherness and bridge-building conversations. In what they call popular kitchen, conversation kitchen and cookery school for young and old. But Folkets Madhus is much more besides this. It is an alternative approach to life that also involves wife Charlotte and the children Malthe, Solvej and Anker, who contribute wherever they can. Because it is fun. Because it is meaningful. And because they are working together as a family on an exciting project that succeeds through their common efforts. Food is the key issue for all five of them, because it involves pleasure and togetherness.
Folkets Madhus is a place that has broken habitual routines and pushed its own boundaries and old limitations. A breathing place between town, country and everything that Kløvermarken and the landfill site, located just outside centric Copenhagen, have to offer in terms of freedom, creative out-of-the-box thinking and green possibilities. An unspoiled location with huge potential. A special refuge with secret corners to hide in, a vegetable garden and an empty bunker for smoking bacon in the slow way that is best. And lots of people one would otherwise never have met.
