Bolle i karry is a traditional favorite for many Danes and is certainly not served as much as it once was.
Denmark's approach to food and diet has changed radically over the last 30-40 years. Naturally the majority of older Danes stick with the traditional high fat diet. However, younger generations have moved strongly towards a light healthier diet. Modern Danish cooking has been influenced heavily by France, Spain and Italy.
