Missing the danish quality milk and dark bread..

Recently relocated to CH from DK...I hear there is a huge danish community here and I am hoping some of them would be on EF as well and help me with their suggestions..

I miss the danish quality milk and dark bread (rugbrod)..have tried stuff from Coop and migros..nothing like stuff in DK..
Migros milk M past is somewhat close to danish milk (in my opinion) but it doesnt come in fat % less than 2.5

Also, can any one please suggest if and where to get Remoulade and Morgenknas in Basel...miss these too...

thanks..

Re: Missing the danish quality milk and dark bread..

If you want milk with a lower fat content you have to buy Magermilch. Coop does a Bio version which is fresh and not UHT. We drink the middle one (2.7% fat).

Re: Missing the danish quality milk and dark bread..

Didn't have the faintest idea of what "morgenknas" is till I googled it:

Your best bet would probably be to have this sent to you from home, because it looks very "particular" (Cornflakes anyone?)

Re: Missing the danish quality milk and dark bread..

You should become a member of the Danish Club Basel (google their website).
They have a quite good overview of Danish inspired / speaking shops in Basel, one of them a bakery (cannot remember the name), it might have rugbroed.

There is also Boutique Danoise which besides designer stuff have some mixed "funny things". With a bit of luck, morgenknas is one of them.

Welcome to the forum.

I have looked for some Danish foods myself, but with only little luck.

Rugbrød as you know it from Danmark --> Nope...not even close. In Ikea Food you can buy Ready Mix for baking your own and they are quite good.

Mælk with less fat --> Haven't looked as 1% extra fat in my opinion doesn't make any different.

Remoulade --> I only wish. Ate my last bit yesterday....uhm....

Morgenknas --> Müsli in general? When I moved here I tried 10-12 different types until I found my favourite....Maybe you should just give it a go?

Velkommen til Schweiz. Send gerne en PM hvis du/I har flere spørgsmål, så skal jeg prøve at hjælpe :-)

Mvh. Lars

I fear it will be difficult finding anything of this here. What I really miss though is black pudding (Swedish: "Blodpudding"), if there is any chance buying that in Switzerland let me know. It is btw entirely different from "Blutwurst" etc.

Many of my family are danish and I enjoy eating Danish food. They have a variety of Herrings including curry herring and remoulade at Jelmoli.

Hejsa

De har noget bröd i Denner - det er ikke helt skidt.

Remulade og Sandwich Ketchup - Det skal med fra DK...

Re: Missing the danish quality milk and dark bread..

you live in Basel, so why don't you try Marktkauf just over the border in Germany? No they won't have your exact Danish brands but I remember seeing some black bread and a reasonable selection of muesli.

Re: Missing the danish quality milk and dark bread..

Hi

Welcome to Basel, I have been here for 4 years now and have actually been able to find some of the things I was used to in Denmark, but you will have to cross the border to Germany.

In MarktKauf in Weil am Rhein (5 minutes away from Basel) they have:
- many different types of rugbrød
- Remoulade (is called hamburger sauce)
- ristet løg
- ægte danske flødeboller
- Kærgården

Good luck with the hunting

/ Tariq

I was about to say the same! Still, to be precise: Look out for the bakery which is just in front of the cashiers desk at Marktkauf (Edeka), they sell a daily changing variety of rye bread(s). Some are so good, you're tempted to eat the whole loaf right there - I however suggest to keep them for at least two days and only then eat 'em. Even better now!

Re: Missing the danish quality milk and dark bread..

Hi

I have tested Rugbrød from COOP, Migros, Denner and Aldi. Denner by far has the best.

Remoulade i have found in Globus.

Why not bake your Rugbrød yourself? it is really easy and the result is really rewarding:

Re: Missing the danish quality milk and dark bread..

Danes are a sneaky people (unless we are drinking) so we are almost everywhere

There might be some online possibilities as well, but think things like rugbrød and other stuff that we wish to have fresh needs to be found locally.

But anyways... when in Rome give some of the Swiss food a chance

Whenever I am in England, I like having black pudding with my breakfast, but I've never thought about what it really is... Isn't it something like "baked blood"? And is the Swedish or Danish Blodpudding better than the English? (never been in either country yet )

Haha, how fun :-) I haven't heard other people complain about toothpaste, but i feel the same.

However, what i miss the most is clearly "rullepølse" - i recently got two packages, that i consumed within a few days ;D

What social arrangements are you attending? It would be fun to meet other Danish people here in Switzerland.

Re: Missing the danish quality milk and dark bread..

I have started baking rugbrød..... Surdej in the fridge ) Very proud of myself ) Can't find real rugmel, though. Any suggestions?

As for remoulade; try Thomys Tartar sauce - I am not saying it is remoulade, but it works really well with food you would normally put remoulade on!

Anyone in the Bern area out there? We are new to Switzerland, a family of four, and trying to start up new friendships.....
