I recently got a wee telling off from a friend for not having tried a Danish Pastry here in Denmark. I certainly wasn’t abstaining, but food is so goddam expensive here that I was searching for a really good looking one.
Surprisingly, although there are bakeries and pastries everywhere, most of them looked really unappetising. Nothing you couldn’t trump in the New World bakery section. Perhaps it has something to do with the newly implemented fat tax in Denmark pushing butter prices up (even microwave popcorn doesn’t have butter), but they vast majority of them look pretty average. Just ask my idol, Nigella – what’s a good dessert without a tonne of butter?
Nonetheless I finally came across one that looked delicious, and gosh was I proven right!
