Jakob Vinkler

Jakob, a leader for many culinary projects in Denmark, believes that enjoying a meal with other people is one of the best starting points to create new connections. One of his favorite projects, The Boundless Kitchen, has done just that by using food as a social tool to bring people from different backgrounds and cultures together at long tables for dinner.

For Jakob, hygge represents a tight-knit group that is locked down and not inclusive, which he feels is a major downside of hygge. He wanted to create a space that addresses this dark side and breaks down its boundaries, so everyone feels accepted and invited.
