A Dane in Crewe part 14

Created by

Since this is my last week, I will start and end this last week with a blog. 

What has to happen over the next five days is to make sure that the knowledge I have gained about Twinning and other subjects is written down so someone after me can pick up from where I left off…. “Hopefully” 

Then I have to go to Crewe Hall, which I have heard so much about, but only seen pictures of. I have been told that someone from the office will take me to see this place and between us “while we are their I am going to interview this member of staff for my assignment back home”.

I am also invited out to eat together with the staff of the south Cheshire Chamber of Commerce, we are going to eat at a place I know well because it has been the place the Danes have regularly hung out and went out for our Saturday and Sunday evening meals. Here I have learnt to appreciate Steak & Ale pie and Fish & Chips. The place I am talking about is of Course the Duke of Gloucester.  I have passed this Pub often on my way to buy another famous British dish named after John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, which I have eaten each day for lunch. In Denmark for lunch I would have eaten Smørrebrød our a Klapsammen.

And on Saturday and Sunday mornings I would have and look forward to again to eat Danish morning buns and Danish Pastry perhaps ending the day with eating a Danish Cake

Danish morning buns (Rundstykker)

Only a few out of a wide range of Danish Pastry (Wienerbrød

Othello lagkage

So Next time you see me, I will - if I eat all this - be a lot bigger than I am already, but it is difficult to say no to something that look so good. But before I go home to all this food I have to visit London and end the final five days at the Chamber, so until the last blog goodbye (farvel).
