What I Ate Wednesday (The Danish Food Edition)

I rarely remember to take pictures of all my meals for a real “What I Ate Wednesday” post, but last week when I traveled to Denmark, I actually remembered to take pictures of all the Danish food I ate on Wednesday!

I ate breakfast at the airport in Frankfurt, but the airport and train station bakeries all over Europe seem to offer similar choices: massive pastries or savory sandwiches.

Since I was not in the mood for a sugar rush or crash + burn later, I opted for a savory sandwich. The whole grain bread with nuts and seeds looked delicious, and the egg, turkey and cheese had real staying power.

Even though I’d been up for two hours, I hadn’t had any coffee yet, so I ordered a “grosse kaffee.” They showed me their “extra large” mug, and it looked like it would do the trick.

By lunch time I was in Copenhagen, and had worked up an appetite getting from the airport to my hotel and orienting myself for my afternoon meeting. I studied the menu on the street for A Hereford Beefstouw, and was debating between a salad with a baked potato or a burger and “frites.” Once I sat down and smelled other hot lunches cooking, there was only one thing that would do!

Dinner was a real treat, as a friend who lives in Copenhagen had invited me over, and she and her husband prepared a gourmet meal showcasing “real” Danish food.

We started off with a soup course.

The main course included cod, new potatoes, and salad.

Don’t worry, I had seconds!

For dessert, ice cream and a traditional Danish confection called flødeboller.

So, that was my What I Ate Wednesday of Danish food!

Are you an adventurous eater when you travel?

Do you prefer a sweet or savory breakfast?

  3. How awesome to get a home cooked meal! So, what’s in flodeboller? I like a little sweet in my breakfast, but overly sweet will leave me crashing.

    The coffee looks fantastic too!

    All of that looks tasty – so cool that you had friends there and were able to share a meal with them.
    I like sweet breakfasts if it is still early but if I’ve been up awhile then I always go savory!!!
