Artist's Description

My first trip to Denmark was four Decembers ago. It was dark and rainy, and the wind almost knocked me off my bike. My Danish husband claimed that if I could survive the darkest day of the year, I would be able to live here someday. Not only did I survive, but I came to truly love many of Denmark’s holiday food traditions.

Here are the highlights – a mix of my personal favorites and those of my Danish friends – which I’ve gathered here in a wreath to celebrate:

Signs of the season
- Gløgg, mulled wine with slivered almonds and raisins
- Æbleskiver – spherical pancakes served with powdered sugar and jam
- Brunkager – crispy, thin cookies full of Christmas spices: cloves, allspice, and cinnamon
- Vaniljekranse – buttery cookies shaped like wreaths
- Konfekt – treats like candied orange slices, dates, or liqueur-spiked marzipan, covered in chocolate
- Pebernødder – round, crunchy, spiced cookies to go with warm drinks

Christmas Eve dinner traditions
- Grønlangkål – creamed kale
- And – roasted duck
- Rødkål – slow-cooked red cabbage
- Waldorfsalat – Waldorf salad with apples, walnuts, celery, and grapes
- Brune og Hvide Kartofler – caramelized potatoes and white potatoes
- Risalamande – fluffy rice pudding served with warm cherry sauce
