And, it seems, Danish pastry is from Vienna.
yes! we call it "wienerbrød" which translates to "vienna bread". but i think there are so many adapted danish versions that it's sort of a danish thing now. I'm pretty sure it's called "Kopenhagenerbrot" in german - which translates to "Copenhagener Bread".
according to my research, the story of danish pastries is that back in the 1700s the bakeries didn't want to pay the bakers a decent wage (it's hard to explain the conflict. basically you got trained to be a baker, and it was the trainees who didn't want to work unless they got a decent pay), so they went on a strike (we are the country that created workers movements and unions, after all.).
The bakeries responded with importing a bunch of bakers from Vienna, who brought a recipe for a sweetened bread made from flour, sugar and butter, which was folded several times. And when the bakeries and the trainees came to agreement, the viennese bakers were sent back to Vienna, and the danish trainees had to learn how to make the viennese dough because it had become so popular.
Of course, there were made several recipes from this dough, a lot of which WERE actually made in Denmark - so it's not too strange it's called a danish after all.
