I am Danish!

I’m from Denmark, a little country in Northern Europe, part of Scandinavian (Denmark, Sweden, Norway). The capital of Denmark is Copenhagen (we say “København”) – so no, we’re not the capital of Sweden!

We also speak Danish (not Dutch – that’s in Holland!), and we really like us some Danish pastry. Now, I live in Boston in the U.S. of A., where you can buy “Danish”. When I first came to Boston to study music, I once bought that thing called a “Danish”, because I missed home and felt homesick. I soon found out, it had nothing to do with Danish pastry! After one bite I threw the rest in the trash can, can’t remember what I did to feel less homesick…

 So what is Danish pastry? Well, the best pastry you’d get at the bakery baked the same day/night before. It’s flaky; it’s juicy and melts in your mouth! It could be filled with marzipan, jam, chocolate, or maybe a sugar/butter paste. The best thing is that no matter what time of the day it is, it’s always pastry time!

 

Here is what it should look like:

 

Could also look like this:
