Exquisite Smørrebrød Decor


Smørrebrød (originally smør og brød; Danish for “butter and bread”) usually consists of a piece of buttered rye bread (rugbrød), a dense, dark brown bread, Pålæg (literally “on-lay”), the topping, then among others can refer to commercial or homemade cold cuts, pieces of meat or fish, cheese or spreads. This daily practice is the base on which the art of the famous Danish open sandwich, smørrebrød, is created: A slice or two of pålæg is placed on the buttered bread, and then pyntet (decorated) with the right accompaniments, to create a tasty and visually appealing food item.
