“I love it,” said EU Commissioner, Margrethe Vestager, about the “tarteletter” (old school Danish vol-au-vents) to Alex Barker from the international business paper, Financial Times, when the met over lunch at Restaurant Kronborg. Their lunch was part of the weekly interview series “Lunch with the FT”.

Financial Times – the leading business paper in the UK, possibly in the world – has a regular weekly column where a prolific journalist or editor interviews a personality from the world of politics, business or culture. The interview always takes place over a lunch (chosen by the interviewee) based on the idea of rediscovering the art of conversing preferably in pleasant surroundings, accompanied by food and drink.
In late September 2017 Financial Times published and interview by Alex Barker, head of the paper’s office in Brussels, with Danish EU Commissioner for Competition, Margrethe Vestager.
The interview took place at Restaurant Kronborg, and – even if it is in no way a restaurant review – we now know that Margrethe Vestager loves “tarteletter” (old school Danish vol-au-vents), and Alex Barker finds our stirred beef tartare “delicious” (but he doesn’t really care for herrings… ).
