Following other hounds' leads, I went this weeekend to the danish pastry house (Alington street in the old Iggy's site). I heartily second the previous posts that their danishes are flaky buttery wonders. I ordered the apricot which was made with nice preserves and was comped a macaroon one that I thought excellent and ia little unusual. What a difference from the lardy things we're accustomed to. I had the next morning the ham and cheese croissant which was highly praised in a prior post. It is indeed excellent wit a real piece of ham, thick cut and never having seen plastic and good cheese in flaky puff pastry. I've not been to Denmark but this place's baking compares favorably to places in France and Austria except for differences in water, flour and butter in this country which can't be helped. I was originally concerned with the loss of Iggy's from the neighborhood and having to schlepp over to cambridge location. Now, I'm glad that there is a little more euro-diversity in the Boston baking scene.
