Delicious Danish dishes

Get your wooden spoon and apron at the ready: we're here to satisfy your unquenchable wanderlust and bring a slice of happy Denmark to your kitchen. From impossible to pronounce Danish desserts to our daily staple, rye bread, there's plenty to keep you occupied here. 

Comfort food from Scandinavia

Traditional Danish food - we're not talking about New Nordic foams and experimental ideas here - has a reputation for being hearty. In times like these, we find joy in potatoes and energy to keep going in our low GI rye bread loaves.

Our national dish: roast pork with parsley sauce

Our healthy daily bread: rye bread

Tasty and always a hit: meatballs

A favourite with rye bread: Chicken salad

Potatoes but even more delicious: 'Burning Love' (that's it's real name!)

Got a sweet tooth? Try these

Sweet things are not in short supply in Denmark (our cities have a sweet shop on practically every corner) but these are something special and pretty easy to make at home too.

The unpronounceable one

The classic apple cake

The thirst-quenching drink
