Re: Cost of Cold Beer

carstenb, over here in the states we have all kinds of 'foreign' names for things that probably don't exist in the country they're named after. one popular breakfast biscuit is called 'thomas's english muffin', but i've been told that the english have no idea what they are.

to the credit of the danes however, 'danish' pastries are very popular here, have been for decades if not centuries, (my favorite is cheese filled) and everyone here thinks they originated in denmark. any truth to that?

As I noted, in Denmark, these pastries are "weinerbroed" The direct translation of that is "Viennese Bread".

Self-explanatory?

Re: Cost of Cold Beer

But that doesn't mean that they are not made in Denmark, because they are and in big numbers too. Who cares if they were invented by some guy from Vienna ?

The "Danish" made in the US bears little resemblance to the "weinerbroed" made here.

I believe the reason they are called "danish" in the US dates back to the immigration times (1800's and early 1900's) Danes immigrated and brought their foods with them. These proved popular, but no one could pronounce the Danish word, so they ended up just being called "danish".

This typical of most migrations. Americans visiting europe for the first time are generally appalled at the pizza they find, even in italy. Then even more appalled when they see europeans eating it with a knife and fork.

Course no one else in the world makes a hamburger as good as what you can get (some places) in the US

I would happily swap half my stock of cold beer for a small selection of yours

I've got one of the latter onboard, but unfortunately, none of the former
