Supporting the production and utilisation of regional foods, passing on knowledge and strengthening the deep-rooted food and cooking culture of
Schleswig-Holstein in a sustainable way – these are the aims of the association FEINHEIMISCH – Genuss aus Schleswig-Holstein e.V. (which translates as approximately Fine and local – food from Schleswig-Holstein), and which was founded by restaurant-owners and chefs, food producers and gourmets in the autumn of 2007. Since then the state-wide initiative has grown considerably.
