Have other cultures ever influenced your cooking, /ck/?
I moved to Denmark and the community I hang around with here well... nobody cares about the food, however they care about spending money on food. So they gather their money, buy expensive meat. However all that quality meat they buy just goes to waste on those recipes they use from "the good old days". The beer they serve before, during and after dinner is what everyone seems to care about...
I stopped partying mainly because of the amount of alcohol people here drink, and their demand of me having to drink like they do. It doesn't even bother me though, what really bothers me is them butchering all that good meat on those traditional food recipes that are mediocre at best.
I tried gatorade, mountain dew and pumpkin pie thought they were "meh".
But I loved the combo of grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup after learning about it on /ck/
No, and it irritates me whenever I put butter in something people call it french influence, or if I put oregano in something its all of a sudden italian.
Like fuck off you think french are the only people to use butter? Sure they have very high quality butter but just because I stir a nub of butter into a soup doesn't mean its all of a sudden some french miracle.
ive lived on and off in denmark over the years and they generally seem to have a pretty big spread for breakfasts
my aunt in law once made mashed potatoes with gravy once and it was really good if any of you are aware of any tasty danish gravy recipes lemme know
it might not have been even specifically a danish gravy i just remember really liking it
I'm an immigrant^Nth, so yes.

>I was born in country A, and am a citizen of countries A and D, and raised in countries A, B, D and F
My mum combines A, B and C with a little D, dad combines A, D and E with a little F and I cook mostly A, D and F with some influences from B, C and E.
My GF's mom is from England. She came over in her 20's to work as a nanny, and ended up meeting her husband and staying. They do Lamb with mint sauce as the main course on Christmas day every year. For a midwest boy who rarely gets lamb, due to its price around here, it was different. I've been doing it ever since. Still with the same girl. 14 years now. Not sure if I'd carry on if we split, but I think I probably would.
There are actually good traditional food in Denmark, however it's just not what they think of serving at their parties.
I mean I love Smoerrebroed (butter and bread). It's healthy, delicious and very well balanced. Often made on dark rye bread, however you can make that with normal wheat bread too, since dark rye bread is one of those things that many foreigners like me need 1-2 years to get used to eating and enjoying...
They also have a fine national dish they call Flaeskesteg (roated pork) that they prepare in a very delicious and tasty way. It is accepted to serve at parties, however they rarely do it ... everyone loves it, but they still rarely make this dish x_x
Their big pallet for breakfast products is due to their smoerrebroed that I mentioned above. They don't always make it that fancy, and often it's just a slice of bread with butter, slice of sousage or meat and 3 slices of cucumber + mayo/ remoulade/ sennep ...whatever that fits.
lol the gravy was probably "brun sovs". I am sorry, I let others cook Danish food for me, normally, but I managed to google this video up:
