Remoulade

This is a really easy recipe because you just have to mix together lots of things from jars. Remoulade is a sauce that I think is unique to Denmark and it is always kept in the cupboard next to the ketchup and mustard. It is very hard to find outside Denmark. My dad always bring…

Syltede agurker

Syltede agurker, or pickled cucumber, is easy to buy in jars in the supermarket in Denmark but not so easy to find in other countries. It is used as a topping  or side dish in lots of Danish food, including smørrebrød (open sandwiches), hot dogs and even burgers. Here is a recipe to make your…

Flæskesteg

This recipe is most complicated one that I’m going to do. It’s for flæskesteg — pronounced ‘fleskesty’, which is roast pork. Danes love pork. There are pig farms all over Denmark and you will find a pork dish at nearly every big Danish dinner. Because flæskesteg on its own might not be especially Danish, I’m going…

Boller i karry

This is one of my favourite Danish recipes. It’s like chicken curried meatballs and it’s delicious. All kids in Denmark love this food. Once when I had this, I was allergic to something in the ingredients. I don’t know what it was, but it gave me spots on my face! But don’t let that put you…

Frikadeller

For my next recipe I’ve chosen frikadeller which are a special type of meatball that come from Denmark. If you have ever had meatballs at IKEA they’re a bit like those. Normally I would have them with pasta and some ketchup but in Denmark people eat them all sorts of ways – hot, as part a a…

Fiskefilet

For my next recipe I have chosen fiskefilet which means fish fillet. Luckily this time the Danish and the English are the same and it really is a fish fillet. When you grow up in Denmark there are two foods that nearly all children love to eat. The first one is frikadeller. These are a…

Æbleskiver

For my next recipe I have chosen æbleskiver. Æbleskiver means ‘apple slices’, which is weird because it doesn’t have any apples in it and it’s not sliced. Æbleskiver are actually round pancakes which you dip in jam and then icing sugar, and they are really yummy. In Denmark, they are mostly eaten in the winter.

Pebernødder

I chose pebernødder as my first recipe as it really reminds me of Denmark. We usually had pebernødder at Christmas. They are delicious biscuits with cinnamon and ginger in them.
