The danish. A beloved pastry across our nation. First popularized in the US by Danish baker Lauritz C. Klitteng in the 1920s, the viennoserie pastry has become a staple in the roster of American baked goods.
When I arrived in Copenhagen, the first thing I asked my taxi driver was where I could find the best danish, or wienerbrød, as they call it. He directed me to Lagkagehuset, one of the nicest bakery chains in Denmark.
Let me tell you, it was heavenly. I purchased a wienerbrød, a kanelsnegle (cinnamon bun) and a loaf of dark rugbrød. Though the pastries were delicious, nothing beat a slice of rugbrød with Lurpak butter!
