Julefrokost: sylte, æbleflæsk

Christmas Eve (Juleaften) roast duck or pork with cracklings with white potatoes, caramelised potatoes, pickled red cabbage and gravy. dessert: Ris a la mande ( a ricedessert with vanilla, sugar and almonds) With warm or cold cherry sauce.

Easter Lunch (Påskefrokost): You start with the fish, differnt kind of raw marinated heerings, gravad and smoked salmon on white bread, smoked eel with scrambled eggs and chives continue with a variation of warm and cold dishes that goes well with rye bread. and finish with a variation of different cheeses with crackers, white bread and rye bread and fruits. You eat for several hours only interrupted by laughing, talking, drinking beer and snaps and of course saying a lot of "skål". Not so funny if you are the designated driver....

Soup, roast and icecream (Suppe, steg og is): A traditional food concept that all Danish with traditional families know. Variations of this menu have been served for decades. Luckily people are getting bolder and more ready to try something new.

Smagens dag


Det kolde bord is based on cold served dishes. Herring is most likely the ingredient of the first dish that is served at this meal, although most of the types are based on meat.
