On the road: Hej Denmark!

Tomorrow I head out to Denmark for work and for this reason, posts may be spotty until next Monday. Hopefully there will be some interesting things for me to report back afterwards — my knowledge of Danish cuisine and food-related things can be easily whittled down to a 5-part list:

The only 5 things I know about Danish cuisine (pre-departure):

1) The “Best Restaurant in the World” is Noma in Copenhagen (both the city and the restaurant are unfortunately not on the itinerary this time around).

Trine (at verygoodfood.dk) has eaten at noma several times. Click on this photo to read her blog for her reviews of noma, as well as some amazing reviews of Copenhagen restaurants. Her photography is excellent.

2)Those little butter cookies in tins, stuffed into little paper wrappers, and studded with huge sugar crystals.

3) The delectable breakfast pastry.

4) Germans get bacon from a Danish company.

5) As far as I know, hot dogs are consumed with remoulade, pickles, and roasted, fried onions (which I could easily throw on almost any savory dish).

Props to Serious Eats for this awesome graphic. Click for their description of Danish Hot Dogs.

Yep. That’s all I know. If anyone has suggestions for a short trip to northern Denmark (not necessarily food-related), please leave them in the comments!
