Mads Larsen on his must-have cooking kit
Cupboard staple? Mustard. It has to be both sweet and strong, but it can be used in so many ways to create flavour. Go-to recipe book? Made in Italy by Giorgio Locatelli. It explains perfectly all the basics of Italian cooking, such as how you should make your sauces from scratch. What kind of cook are you? A social one – I like to do my cooking with people around. It’s always nice to have one of my sons or guests standing next to me so I can spend time with them while I’m chopping vegetables. Most important utensil? There is absolutely nothing worse than a kitchen without a sharp knife.
When you’re not cooking, where do you like to eat out? Pluto in Copenhagen. They serve small plates inspired by Spanish, Italian and Nordic cooking. The food is extremely good.
