The food culture is built up in an area with fishing, farming and trading, especially in the area around the borough Ebeltoft, Mols and Rønde. A coast culture along the many small inlets and harbors creates atmosphere and life at fishshops in Begtrup Vig, Egens Havhuse and in Ebentoft.
Fishing is not an important trade today, as early as the 1880’s Ebeltoft began to focus at tourists. Seaside hotels, bathing establishments and summerhouses became a normal thing in the area. Today tourism is an important trade in the municipality. Tourism and food experiences is a good match.
Ebeltoft is the city of the apples. In the garden at the old Farvergård, a part of Museum Østjylland, the original Ebeltoft - apple tree stands. In the streets of Ebeltoft you will apples of stone, telling a story of the city of the apples, along with 12 fields with Danish apple trees.
Molbordet is a network of local food producers, restaurants and shops. Local patriotism and love for food is central in their manifest.
