You have to want to go to Koks. This remote restaurant, the first address on the Faroe Islands with a Michelin star, recently moved to new digs near Lake Leynar. Follow the dirt track and forbidding mountains that ripple toward the old farmhouse to embark on a culinary journey across the archipelago. Inside, an embracive swathe of pine and sheepskin awaits. Channelling ancient traditions – drying, fermenting, salting, smoking – locovore (those who only what is local) Poul Andrias Ziska elevates the islands' fare to star status here. Stalwart dishes include wild-fermented lamb, razorbill wellington and mahogany clams, plucked from the frigid waters nearby, served with kale purée and kelp broth.
