In Denmark, breakfast is all about hygge, the cosy atmosphere for which the Danes are famed. The key is shared tables and outside eating, simple local produce, eaten in company.
A day in Copenhagen traditionally begins with three ingredients: rye bread, eggs and coffee. Now, however, it has become fashionable to indulge in freshly baked crisp pastries from artisanal bakeries that are scattered all around the city.
Porridge is a big deal as well, especially for cold winter mornings, And, then of course, brunch has also become popular for lazy morning gatherings, where you can indulge on scrambled eggs and smoked salmon.
Everything in Copenhagen is done with style, whether you cook at home or eat out. Try these five classic breakfast and a godmorgen is practically guaranteed.
The Danish are raised on oats. Known locally as grød, this cheap and comforting food has been on the Dane’s top list for decades and everyone has their own favourite way to eat it.
Oats can be cooked in water or milk, made with or without sugar and butter, and can be topped with dried fruit, fresh fruit and nuts, honeys and syrups. The options are endless. A steaming bowl of grød is an especially popular choice in winter, when the weather is cold and wintry.
It’s also a healthy way to start the day, as oats will keep you going all morning.
