Danish Cuisine in Zagreb

Presentation of Danish Cuisine in Zagreb: Sandwiches and Glogg Delighted Visitors

Who needs breakfast at Tiffany’s when you can have a special Danish breakfast in the city centre? And not just any meal… Today Zagreb citizens had the opportunity to try Danish Christmas dishes prepared by Anders Christian Hougård, the Danish ambassador to Croatia. The menu from the ‘Land of the Vikings’ was offered at a special price as a part of Advent on European Square program. Visitors were able to taste three dishes: Frikadeller (meatballs with red cabbage and caramelized potatoes), Smørrebrød Fish (a sandwich with salmon cream, horseradish, dill and radish), and Smørrebrød Meat (a sandwich with roast beef, remoulade and baked onions). And all this with a drop of good Danish mulled wine – Glogg!

Apart from the Danish meals, those who visited European Square had the opportunity to sample local delicacies from the Little Market. Every Saturday and Sunday from 11 am to 4 pm, the Little Market brings small farmers to European Square. With citruses from Dalmatia, seasonal vegetables from Slavonia, organic honey and juices, homemade ghee butter, teas, spreads, dips and all sorts of winter store foods (mostly pickled), no one will leave with their taste buds unsatisfied.
