The hotdog – a cheap, easy to eat, and arguably delicious food.
The history of the hotdog is quite diverse and interesting for such a seemingly simple piece of meat. The sausage is one of the oldest processed foods known to man. It is believed to date all the way back to the time of the Roman Empire, and possibly even before. According to The US National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, both Germany and Austria claim the hotdog was originated in their respective countries. Hence the names frankfurter, as in Frankfurt, Germany and wiener, as in Vienna (Wein), Austria.
Wherever the hotdog came from, no matter today. It is loved on every continent by children and old folks alike. Photographer Nikolas McKinlay set out with his camera to catch some hotdog action in Denmark.
