Over the years he has also worked in internationally renowned restaurants such as Sanisbar Sylt and Seepferdchen Sylt.
In addition to cooking, Bojsen loves nature, the ocean, surfing and photography. Thanks to this , he has traveled around the world as a photographer for surf magazines. Moreover, in 1999 he became Danish Longboard Surf Master and founded his own surf magazine Freemag.
After years of exploration, in 2014 he opened his Brian’s Steak and Lobster restaurant in Hamburg, which became famous for its excellent meat and seafood dishes. A short time later he published his own cookbook “Lækker” and participated in various cooking TV shows such as Kerner’s Köche, Küchenschlacht and Kitchen Impossible. He also created the food and beverage concept for the Scandinavian restaurant Krønasår, at Europa Park Rust, and began traveling the world for his television programs Caravaning and Cooking and Wild Scandinavian Way.
In 2021, his passion for outdoor events led him to close his restaurant in Hamburg to better focus on culinary experiences and on his role as an ambassador of authentic Scandinavian cuisine.
