Brits = crackers & chocolate

Henry Hargreaves and Caitlin Levin have created maps of countries and continent with food that they found representable for the regions, “a playful representation of our interpretation of food from around the world.”

I don’t know about you but I would be slightly offended if my country was depicted as dry crackers and milk chocolate. On the other hand maybe that displays the Brits quite well?
So I wonder which iconic regional foods would represent Denmark? Maybe thanks to René Redzepi it would be a tasty medley of herbs & greens, Nordic berries, fresh fish and farm-raised beef. I’d prefer that over the conclusion one could come to after reading a recent article in the economist. Then it would be bacon. Not that I don’t like bacon.
