Danish Food: Don't Do As the Americans Do

Regarding the article "When in Denmark, Do as the Americans Do," Aug. 1: Too bad the author didn't bother to read a tour guide before her trip to Copenhagen. She gives the impression of believing she was traveling to a desolate backwater instead of a sophisticated city praised for its urbane amenities. And her trashing of Danish food sounds like an excuse to indulge in the overseas fast-food that she was afraid to eat at home.

This American found plenty of good eats on the streets of Copenhagen - a large variety of "polser" sausages, served with chili sauce and curry mayo, crisp cheese sandwiches, and the best ice cream. To round out a lunch or dinner on the run, I'd drop by a produce stand and fill up on local veggies or fruit imported from Spain.

My husband and I fantasize about a return trip to Copenhagen. As soon as we could, we'd hop on our bikes and ride out to our favorite polser kiosk by the beach. Danish food is delicious!
