HOUNÖ believes in the magic that happens when people get together and share a meal. That’s why we say “Let’s bring people to the table” and that’s why we are the proud sponsor of Det Grænseløse Køkken (The Boundless Kitchen). Det Grænseløse Køkken is the embodiment of “Let’s bring people to the table”; through the shared meal, this socioeconomic project enables integration and bridges societal gaps.
Det Grænseløse Køkken has two HOUNÖ CombiPlus® gas ovens in their kitchen. The ovens are used to cook for their communal meals, each of which serve 150-200 people.
The chefs in The Boundless Kitchen are from all over the world; many are refugees from war-torn countries. Working in the Boundless Kitchen is a step for these new citizens of Denmark to integrate into Danish society. Grænseløs also means borderless in Danish, and the project tries to break down borders between cultures and social classes. They believe, just as HOUNÖ does, that the best way to do so is through a shared meal – because when you share a meal and have a conversation together, you get a better understanding of each other.
Det Grænseløse Køkken hosts many communal eating events this summer at Den Gamle Maltfabrik in Ebeltoft, Denmark. For more information about Det Grænseløse Køkken and their event, please visit their website.
