On December 24th the meal that we find on all the Danish Christmas tables is “flæskesteg” roasted pork and duck served with boiled potatoes, caramelized potatoes and cabbage salad (original way) or a modern one cooked with grenade, orange and nuts, all accompanied by drinks: julebrygg, mulled wine, gløgg and wine, mostly. For dessert, they eat the famous ‘ris a l’Amande’, which is rice with almonds. It’s a traditional Danish dessert served at Christmas. To cook it, you have to mix rice pudding with whipped cream, milk, vanilla and laminated almonds. It is served cold with a cherry sauce. A Christmas game is linked to this dessert. One entire almond is hidden in the dessert and the person who finds it wins a special prize: it could be a chocolate heart, a marzipan pig or a board game, it depends on the family.
