For nearly a month a number of traditional dishes have been competing about which dish should be awarded national dish of Denmark.

The national Dish of Denmark (From Wikipedia)

The competition was monitored by the parliament in Denmark.

The winner with more than 27,000 votes became Roast pork with parsley sauce

Of course there are people like Camilla Plum who is known for having a son convicted of slaughtering a pony on a public beach who accuse Danes for being too self-centered by choosing a national dish which don’t appeal to some heathens abroad. But then it is a national dish. It is not a tourist special dish.

If people want to come to Denmark and taste something special butter and bread. If you buy The shooting Star in Foetex (A Danish supermarked) you have a meal.

Our national dish is for us Danes. In Copenhagen there is a pub called “Rio Bravo” where several politicians eat our national dish. In fact our history books contain an important political settlement between the government at that time and politicians from the opposition called the “Rio Bravo Agreement” because it was made in that pub. Sometime when civil war is close to happen in Denmark the politicians met out in town and talks things over.

Some years before the Second World War Denmark were close to chaos. Then politicians met in the private home of Stauning where they ate and drank until they reached what is known as the Kanslergade Agreement.

That is just one reason Roast pork with parsley sauce or “Stegt Flaesk med persillesovs” has been nominated as the national dish for Denmark.
