Koks - Fær Øer Islands
KOKS is a restaurant located in Leynavatn, in the Faroe Islands.
It offers a 17-course tasting menu and won its first Michelin star in 2017. KOKS was the first restaurant to be awarded by the Michelin Guide in the Faroes.
At the heart of KOKS is a young chef and native of Torshavn: Poul Andrias Ziska. The young avant-gardes at KOKS use Faroese produce, both coarse and fine, ancient and modern, always keeping an eye on sustainability, leaving the hills that bring forth the good fruit to flourish.
Rather than chasing the novel for its own sake, every effort is put into exploring the ancient practices – drying, fermenting, salting and smoking.
KOKS follows the seasons and what they bring forth, transforming ancient culinary tradition into modern delicacies. The simple and pure, what is fresh and traditional characterizes KOKS.
