While writing my post, I'd read about the commune of Cambrai, in northern France, namesake of a fine woven cloth called cambric. I thought no more of it until an EIT reader, by email, noted a possible if tenuous connection:

There are also tamales de cambray in coastal Oaxaca and (I've heard) in Nicaragua. "Cambray" means cambric cloth, and I've seen a claim that the Oaxacan tamales were originally wrapped in fine cambric instead of plantain leaves. Never felt completely convinced of that. I wonder whether the name may indicate (or once have indicated) something fine-textured and more or less white and having associations with delicacy and luxury.

Thanks, Anne!

Some what similar to danish and the combo should be great I guess, because when you mix cheese with anything it brings out the actual flavor.
