Demmark traditionally ranks among the happiest countries in the world despite its long, dark winter days. Could it be the food and drink? Here is some traditional Danish fare:
- Stegt Flæsk Med Persillesovs – Fried Pork Belly with Potatoes and Parsley Sauce (National Dish)
- Brændende Kærlighed – Burning Love (mashed potatoes, diced onions, and fried bacon)
- Smørrebrød – Open-face Sandwich
- Hønsekødssuppe – Chicken Broth Soup
- Pølser – Hot Dog (with apple ketchup, remoulade, mustard, onions and pickles)
- Forlorn Hare – Meatloaf
- Pickled Herring
Oh and BTW in Denmark, a ‘Danish pastry’ is called a wienerbrød (Vienna bread), of which there are dozens of different delicious varieties, from the iconic yellow custard pastry (spandauer), snegle or “snails”, and the super-sweet chocolate icing-covered direktørsnegl. Now we want one.
No other country in the world produces as much beer in relation to its size and number of inhabitants. Think Carlsberg. Makes a great chaser for a shot of Aquavit. Skål!
The greetings “hello” and “byebye” are hej and hej hej, respectively.
Hej hej and Go Canada!
