(Open-faced Sandwiches by John)

“Smørrebrød, directly translated from Danish, means buttered bread, but that does not describe these pieces of flavourful art in the least.  Starting out with one piece of whole-grain rye bread, it is buttered and topped with, for instance, shrimps, smoked salmon, herring, fish fillets, liver pâté , roast beef, roast pork, ham, and/or cheese.  This is then typically complemented with some vegetables and herbs such as dill or parsley, thinly sliced cucumber and lemon, as well as tomato wedges and/or pickled beets.  Mayonnaise, or mayonnaise-based dressings often top off the sandwich and the mixtures of flavours come together to create the full experience.” (John McCaughan Christensen, 2011)
