Danish CookbookDanish Food: Canadian Attitude

The contents are not as much for the 1st generation immigrant as it is for the following generations as a teaching tool meant to carry on traditions through food. This book has recipes, stories to go with some foods and how and where to serve these dishes and some very beautiful pictures. 1st generation immigrant customers have called it a delightful book to buy as a gift for their younger generations. They appreciate spaces left in the book for the purpose of the buyer to include a favorite recipe to hand down.
Danish Open face Sandwiches are delicious but first they are beautiful for eyes to behold. Introduced in Denmark during the 1920’s they have been dressed down or dressed up. For celebratory events they are a piece of art. There are 16 different sandwich instructions in this book. I give you one example:

½ piece of thin sliced rye or pumpernickel bread. Lots of butter on the bread, it holds the leaf of butter lettuce in place. Old fashioned ham rolled, folded to give dimension to the look. Don’t be skimpy! Steamed peas and carrots chilled and in mayonnaise are liberally put on top. Add 2 spears of cold and cooked asparagus (white is mostly used by Danes, green asparagus works too.) Now get a little fancy by using a small sprig of parsley and perhaps a lemon slice cut and twisted.
