Located in a charming old merchant’s house in Ærøskøbing, Ærø’s main town of around 900 inhabitants, Restaurant
Mumm is saturated by authentic island romance. But the restaurant is not just known for its pretty setting, but also
its delicious food and heartfelt atmosphere – despite the fact that guests will find neither a high-profile chef nor
a savvy hospitality manager behind the yellow-brick walls. Rather, they will be met by 51-year-old Peder Vilhelm
Sørensen, a former carpenter turned kitchen chef, and 52-year-old Pia Fuglsang, a philosopher turned hostess.
The local couple admits to being a little humbled by the success of their venture, which recently expanded from a
seasonal to an all-year operation.
