In this episode of Chef's Night Out, we head out for an evening in Copenhagen with the crew from restaurant Kjøbenhavn. Head chef Rasmus Lund Jonasson brings his restaurant manager and a couple of old friend on a truffle, sausage and wine-­fueled quest to visit some of their favorite haunts. The mission kicks off at Enomania, an Italian restaurant and wine bar, where the group feasts on fresh pasta and a deceptively healthy take on tiramisu.

Then, after a good bunch of wine, they head to Gammel Mønt, an old ­school Copenhagen restaurant where the famous head chef "Red Claus" serves a decadent fish dinner featuring Russian caviar and turbot. Next up, a quintessential Danish hotdog pitstop for a round of big, juicy sausages affectionally known as "Børge."

It's back to a diet of seafood and booze at restaurant Musling where the Bloody Mary comes with a shot of akvavit and where the gang eat their way through a seemingly endless supply of pristine oysters. Finally, they head back to the kitchen at Kjøbenhavn to cook an epic MUNCHIES meal. There are steak sandwiches with "drunk" sauce, a whole fried Peking­-style duck and deep-­fried Kinder milk­ slices with coconut ice cream.

No wonder our head chef didn't make it to bed before sunrise.
