GRANDMOTHER’S COOKING IS THE BEST IN THE WORLD
Although the Danes have been leading quite a culinary revolution in these past recent years and Copenhagen has become one of the most influential food cites in the world, we are still very fond of grandmother’s cooking. These recipes are still very popular with the Danes and with professional chefs that are beginning to bring them back into the modern kitchen we are all so proud of.
Here is a refreshing summer dish that is always a hit wtth children and adults alike. The soup can be eaten with small cookies that are crushed and sprinkle over the top of the soup. Or, my favorite, it can be eaten with fresh strawberries. We Danes believe that our strawberries are the best in the world, because of the cool, spring and summer nights. It takes longer for our strawberries to ripen, but it makes them more sweet than strawberries in other countries with sunshine all dag long.
