Denmark is fast becoming known as Scandinavia’s gourmet food capital. This is in part thanks to the wealth of natural raw ingredients that chefs and ordinary Danes can access around the country. Foraging for regional ingredients is more popular than ever and more and more restaurants are experimenting with new takes on traditional Danish recipes. Denmark can also boast a long tradition of producing world-class meat and diary products, thanks to generations of Danes who have worked hard to perfect the process of safe and sustainable food production in Denmark.
