Until a few years ago, Danish food was essentially associated with potatoes and bacon, and Danish cuisine was completely unknown outside the country. Not anymore. Over the last decade, the New Nordic Cuisine has revolutionised Danish gastronomy and created an entirely new focus on local ingredients. It has meant a renaissance of classic Danish dishes, which are currently available in modern versions at several of Copenhagen's best restaurants. Even so, many Danes still love to eat very traditional foods like porridge, open sandwiches and the classic roast pork with parsley sauce - of course served with a glass of good Danish beer. Copenhagen is very popular among gourmets. Some tourists come to Copenhagen for just one day to dine at the best restaurant in the world Noma, standing on the waiting list for a single month.
