Danish dining

A quick rundown of the culinary side of my recent trip:

Here's a typical spread at the student center. You can see chicken, potatoes, pasta salad, vegetables, and a couple of different fish plates.

The three-course conference banquet was almost ridiculously posh. Here's the meat course, with artfully arranged parsnip and beet.

And this was dessert -- a chocolate cake with ganache topping and ice cream.

Danishes do exist in Denmark, but they are not called Danishes.

I tried to eat as cheaply as possible -- this single-huge-pizza-slice lunch cost me 25 kroner, or about $4.50.

On my last night in Denmark, I treated myself to this delectable plate of spaghetti bolognese. No matter where you go, pasta's usually a safe bet, and sometimes it's truly remarkable.

Wow. Very nice. I'm curious if they advertised the pizza as "New York" style. Why I ask is whether or not the whole New York or Chicago style pizza nickname is used overseas.

No pickled herring?
