Authentic Italian Stories.

The first ever Red Spruce gems Pesto
The encounter between the balsamic and woody flavours of the Italian mountains with the Northern European cuisine. An authentic recipe created by a chef who spent his childhood in Val Camonica and who is now a protagonist of the new Nordic cuisine in Copenhagen.
The Chef Nicola Fanetti uses foraging to rediscover environmental awareness and employ wild ingredients in his cooking, such as red spruce gems, which are the shoots that are harvested in early summer in the woods. It is precisely these gems that are the main ingredient in Bonverre’s Nordic Pesto.
In its fresh, balsamic and rich flavour, Nordic Pesto gives an original touch and an Alpine twist to meat, fish, as well as salads and vegetables. Spruce gems are a superfood with a northern charm, but also an ingredient that – used as a condiment – is highly versatile when cooking.

Nicola Fanetti

A great artist
An Italian chef in Copenhagen: Nicola Fanetti at his restaurant Brace offers dishes with Italian roots revisited with local Danish ingredients and the sustainable philosophy of the new Nordic cuisine.
Nicola Fanetti is one of the many youths devoted to haute cuisine who is now flying the flag for Italian cuisine abroad. After years of professional training at Miramonti L ́Altro** and Quadri*, in 2011 he moved to Denmark to gain experience at Noma, the best restaurant in the world. It was in Copenhagen, however, that he discovered not only a style of cooking but also a way of life, which led him to choose the city as his new home. In 2017, he opened Brace, his restaurant, in the heart of the city.

The cuisine of Brace is considered a contemporary Italian cuisine, prepared using only local products with respect for the raw material.
