Scallops with Cabbage, Dill and Buttermilk
Radio restaurant in Copenhagen may be relatively new to the area but their simple yet innovative food is quietly pushing them to the forefront of the local cuisine scene. We had the pleasure of speaking with Chef Jesper Kirketerp, one of the two young chefs behind the food. In addition to insider information about what makes Radio tick, he was also kind enough to share a couple of recipes with us.
Here is one of them. Scallops with buttermilk, drops of dill oil, bread croutons, topped with thinly sliced kohlrabi, a type of cabbage, and dill. Simply delicious!
