Help us preserve Lolland-Falster's distinctive 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 both 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 Lolland-Falster, we would like to collect and secure it for posterity, so that we preserve the nuances in the food culture that distinguish 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 culture project EGN Lolland-Falster which schnapps you swear by, or whether you pour blackcurrant rum or something completely different into the slop sacks.

EGN Lolland-Falster - in brief

EGN Lolland-Falster works across generations and professions and offers the opportunity to get to know the local nature through a renewed knowledge of old knowledge about nature as a pantry.

EGN Lolland-Falster is based on food's ability to bring together, support and strengthen common attachment, cohesion and pride, based on Lolland-Falster's rich food culture.

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



EGN Lolland-Falster 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


EGN Lolland-Falster is implemented by Museum Lolland-Falster in an interdisciplinary collaboration with KOST from the metropolitan 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.
