Danish Recipes


Danish cuisine shares features with that of other Scandinavian countries. It has also been influenced by German cuisine, and to some extext French cuisine. Additionally, as Danish people have begun to travel more widely abroad in recent years, influences from further afield are gradually being introduced into Danish kitchens.

Some popular Danish dishes include:
  • Cod (Danish: Torsk) - Fish forms one of the key ingredients of the Danish diet, and cod is one of the most important fishes. However, due to the rising prices of cod, other fishes are growing in popularity. The Danish eat cod, fried, baked, steamed, or even dried (Danish: Klipfisk).

  • Pickled herring (Danish: Marinerede sild)

  • Eel (Danish: Ål) - Eel is eaten smoked or fried.

  • Shrimp (Danish: Rejer)

  • Smørrebrød - At lunch, Danish people often eaten these open-sandwiches. Danish open-sandwiches are made from a slice of buttered rye bread (Danish: Rugbrød). On this, is placed a topping ((Danish: Pålæg) usually of cold cuts, and the sandwich is then decorated ((Danish: Pyntet) with various accompaniments appropriate to the particular topping.

  • Frikadeller - Frikadeller are sometimes considered the Danish national dish, and is a popular fast food. Frikadeller are actually flattened meatballs made from ground beef, veal or pork. They also contain eggs, milk, and chopped onions, and are coated with bread crumbs. They are cooked by deep frying. Frikadeller are usually served with boiled potatoes, red cabbage, pickled beetroot, and gravy (Danish: Brun sovs). They are also sometimes eaten with creamed white cabbage, or with rye bread (Danish: Rugbrød) and cabbage or pickle slices, or with cold potato salad.

  • Æggekage - This egg-cake is like an omelette, but contains some flour, which causes it rise.

  • Biksemad - A hash made leftovers including from beef or pork meat. It usually contains fried egg, pickled beet slices, ketchup and bearnaise sauce.

  • Pork slices (Danish: Æbleflæsk) - Pork slices with bacon and apple-onion compote.

  • Vandgrød - A porridge made from barley.

Raspberry Danish Murder (A Hannah Swensen Mystery Book 22)
 
Product Description:
Thanksgiving has a way of thawing the frostiest hearts in Lake Eden. But that won’t be happening for newlywed Hannah Swensen Barton—not after her husband suddenly disappears . . .
 
Hannah has felt as bitter as November in Minnesota since Ross vanished without a trace and left their marriage in limbo. Still, she throws herself into a baking frenzy for the sake of pumpkin pie and Thanksgiving-themed treats while endless holiday orders pour into The Cookie Jar. Hannah even introduces a raspberry Danish pastry to the menu, and P.K., her husband’s assistant at KCOW-TV, will be one of the first to sample it. But instead of taking a bite, P.K., who is driving Ross’s car and using his desk at work, is murdered. Was someone plotting against P.K. all along or did Ross dodge a deadly dose of sweet revenge? Hannah will have to quickly sift through a cornucopia of clues and suspects to stop a killer from bringing another murder to the table.

Product Description:
Cookbooks tell stories. They open up the worlds in which the people who wrote and read them once lived. In the hands of a good historian, cookbooks can be shown to contain the markings of political, social, and ideological changes that we conventionally locate outside the kitchen. Over time, cookbooks allow us to trace the course of empires, of social roles, and of new nations. Danish Cookbooks draws from three hundred years of cookbooks to trace the growth of a bourgeois consciousness, the development of domesticity and gendered spheres, and the evolution of nationalism and a specific Danish identity from the early seventeenth to the end of the nineteenth century.

Like all prescriptive literature, cookbooks do not merely reflect the changes of the day but also constitute them. Historian Carol Gold reads recipes and cooking instructions for what can they tell us about literacy levels, division of labor in the kitchen and in society, and changes in the gendered aspects of publishing and utilizing cookbooks. Gold explores the authors' instructions for economic and hygienic housekeeping, and their sentiments about Danish identity as spelled out in dishes and spices. Just as the Danish nation would manage the body politic, so women were exhorted to manage the house and ensure the family's physical and moral health. Through the pages of cookbooks-recipes, menus, and table settings-we can chart the growth of a nationalist Denmark and track the development of what it means to be a Dane.

Carol Gold is professor of history at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

"A tasty menu of Danish cultural delights served up through an enchanting historical narrative." - Terje Leiren, University of Washington
