It's all about food. When moving to or visiting a new country, a new city I am always eager to find out my new favorite places for dining or grabbing a bite on the go. What's the national cuisine like? How can I meet other foodies? Where is the best burger in town?

This time I am sharing about four initiatives in Odense, you should know about, in order to make your food-lovers discoveries easier.
