Open sandwiches


Smørrebrød is a unique Danish way of eating, one the biggest Danish contributions to the world of food culture.

As child, I loved this kind of unconventional eating in our small kitchen, just my mother and me, usually on those evenings after my grandfather had mailed us a really good salami from his local butcher (…) I still remember how that salami on rye bread tasted in our kitchen in Copenhagen.


What will you learn to make in this class?

Smørrebrød is an open sandwich, a piece of rye bread with a variation of toppings. Hidden rules are applied, and flavour combinations are important - smørrebrød is both for everyday eating and special occasions.

Come join Trine for a workshop of making smørrebrød! You will be able to make your own 3-4 pieces of open sandwich, with fish, meat and vegetables and one of your own choice. We will then set the tables and sit down and eat together. We will introduce a variety of snaps and beer that goes well together with smørrebrød.

The class can be taught in Danish and English and will take 2-3 hours.
