Christmas with the Danes

The Danes love good food and drink, and the festive season is no different. Christmas in Denmark is full of traditions centered around enjoying a good meal in the company of friends.

Christmas Dishes

Every year most Danes attend one or more Christmas luncheons througout December. Typically, Christmas luncheons are held by companies for their employers, between groups of friends and family. Most hotels, inns and restaurants offer special Christmas dishes on their menus.

The traditional Danish kitchen offers a wide variety of cold and warm dishes which all belong to this famous ritual, including staple Danish dishes such as salmon, herring, cold cuts and liverpâté with bacon and mushrooms. To make it all go down well you not only have the beer (or wine - or even sparkling water for the drivers) but also the Christmas snaps, which like the beer is presented every year before Christmas.
