Danish Pastry

I'm not much of a football fan, but apparently the danes made pastry out of the english in Copenhagen yesterday, and I do like danish pastry, not that danish pastry is really danish.


There are several versions of the history of danish pastry, but basically, all the danes did was to borrow the idea from the bakers in Vienna and make it famous. Hence Viennabread, which it is called in Denmark, is known as danish pastry across the globe.
