Denmark may be leading a culinary revolution these past years, but the Danish people have their favorite dishes. It is called grandmother cooking and have very specific and time-tested combinations of food that are not to contested or fooled with.  A few monthes ago there was a contest about the best Danish dish. People voted and the dish that won the contest was Fried Pork with Parsley Sauce. In the next  few weeks I will be writing about the most popular dishes that the Dane love and will not stop eating. Over the years ,many recipes have been improved. The amount of fat has been reduced and other ingredients have introduced the dish, but basically they are the same. If you have ever been in Denmark, you may have tasted some of them.
