EGN Lolland-Falster

EGN is a food culture project, which is based on the food's ability to gather, support and strengthen the common connection, cohesion and pride based on Lolland-Falster's rich food culture.

EGN is rooted in both history, present and future.

EGN is for everyone!

EGN is supported by Nordea-fonden, which has a non-profit purpose. The fund supports activities there

promotes good life in health, exercise, nature and
culture. As such, the foundation has no finished recipe
on the good life, but emphasizes support
initiatives that strengthen communities.

HELP US PRESERVE LOLLAND-FALSTER'S SPECIAL FOOD CULTURE

 

 

Museum Lolland-Falster and the food culture project EGN Lolland-Falster need your help.

 

Tell us about your recipes and food traditions with roots on Lolland-Falster.

In this way, you help us to map and preserve old regional dishes and the use of ingredients, as well as newer food traditions that have emerged on Lolland-Falster.

 

Lolland-Falster has a rich historical food culture, which is part of the islands' identity. Through EGN, we want to collect and secure it for posterity, so that we preserve the nuances in the food culture that separate our region from the rest of the country.

Food traditions

Do you use smoked or fresh pork for bacon?

Should the kale be sweet, and do you serve it with browned potatoes or something completely different?

Do you eat sweets for Christmas?

These are apple slices fried in lard, which you split and pour a little schnapps into.

Tell us and the food project EGN, which schnapps you swear by, or whether you pour blackcurrant rum or something completely different into the swabs.

EGN - in short

EGN works across generations and disciplines and provides an opportunity to get to know the local nature through a renewed knowledge of old knowledge about nature as a pantry.

EGN is based on the food's ability to gather, support and strengthen the common connection, cohesion and pride based on Lolland-Falster's rich food culture.

EGN's project period runs from 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2023

What?

EGN wants to create a culinary curiosity by touching, tasting and smell through Lolland -Falster's food culture from the Stone Age and until today based on the cultivated local ingredients.
Through activities and events will we:

- Invite everyone to gain a better understanding of cultural history through shared hands-on experiences and as actors in a living history

- create an understanding of how landscape and geography have affected our raw material base and the development of our local food culture

- recognize, collect, produce and not least taste ingredients and region-specific dishes together

Who?

EGN is carried out by Museum Lolland-Falster in an interdisciplinary collaboration with KOST from the capital area.


Museum Lolland-Falster is a museum with a long history. We are Lolland-Falster's cultural history museum, and it is our most important task to collect, preserve and pass on the good stories about our part of Denmark. We have been doing this for more than 125 years.


BROOM is a food development company focusing on food substance. KOST develops meals, products and stories - based on gastrophysics, gastronomy and food history.

Where?

EGN is geographically located on Lolland-Falster in Guldborgsund and Lolland municipalities.


EGN has a physical project office and MadkulturLAB in the Museum
Lolland-Falster's buildings, in Czarens Hus, Langgade 2,

From here, EGN will go out and meet producers, school students, vocational school students and other actors and citizens
where they are.

You can meet EGN for events and activities at Museums Lolland-Falster's many exhibition venues - just as we will also be at, for example, Madens Folkemøde and Sakskøbing Frugtfestival
