Cucumber (and Mint) Sandwiches / Agurk (og Mynte) Sandwich

Cucumber sandwiches were often served as part of a formal afternoon tea. They had been very fashionable for the upper classes in the Edwardian era and had now become part of ordinary people’s afternoon tea.

Lyon’s Corner Houses were a popular place for people to go and have tea, scones and sandwiches. This recipe comes from a former employee of Lyons, Mrs Olive Bloomfield.

A delicious snack recipe found in “Lær Mer om Sopp” (Learn More

Mushroom Stew on Butterfried Toast / Soppstuing på Smørstekt Toast

Edible mushrooms are the fleshy and edible fruit bodies of several species of macrofungi (fungi which bear fruiting structures that are large enough to be seen with the naked eye). They can appear either below ground (hypogeous) or above ground (epigeous) where they may be picked by hand. Edibility may be defined by criteria that include absence of poisonous effects on humans and desirable taste and aroma.

Edible mushrooms are consumed for their nutritional value and they are occasionally consumed for their supposed medicinal value. Mushrooms consumed by those practicing folk medicine are known as medicinal mushrooms. While hallucinogenic mushrooms (e.g. psilocybin mushrooms) are occasionally consumed for recreational or religious purposes, they can produce severe nausea and disorientation, and are therefore not commonly considered edible mushrooms.

Cambridge Market Sandwich / Sandwich Fra Cambridge Markedet

How many times have you eaten blue cheese and apples and in how many combinations and yet never thought of putting them together in a sandwich. In Cambridge you can get them  wrapped in brown paper, and eat them on a bench outside of King’s College while the choir practiced for an upcoming concert and the students rushed around in their robes.

Mediterranean Stuffed Layered Picnic Loaves / Søreuropeiske Fylte Lagdelte Piknikbrød

A great picnic recipe found on goodtoknow.co.uk
Mediterranean stuffed layered picnic loaves_goodtoknow_post

These Mediterranean stuffed layered loaves are perfect to bring along to a summer picnic – full of mozzarella and tasty, juicy veg, it’s a really great change from the usual cheese sandwiches. Not only does it taste delicious, it also looks really impressive too, as you can see all the colours from the different veg and mozzarella in all the layers when you cut through.

Make sure you take the time to chill the sandwiches in the fridge for a few hours, as the recipe recommends, because this way the juices from the grilled veg will have time to soak into the bread, not only keeping it extra moist but also adding a really fab flavour to it. This Mediterranean layered sandwich is a great grown-up choice for a picnic, and ideal for sharing with friends! Make the night before so all you need to do is grab them from the fridge before you leave!

frestande smörgåskorg_post

traditional badge swedish_flatThe Scandinavian open sandwich (Danish: smørrebrød, Norwegian: smørbrød, Swedish: smörgås or macka) consists of one piece of buttered bread, often whole-grain rye bread (Danish & Norwegian: rugbrød, Swedish: rågbröd), topped with, for instance, cheese, cold steak, shrimps, smoked salmon, caviar, hard boiled eggs, bacon, herring, fish fillets, liver pâté (Danish: leverpostej, Norwegian: leverpostei Swedish: leverpastej), and/or small meatballs. This is typically complemented by some herbs and vegetables such as parsley, cold salad, thinly sliced cucumber, tomato wedges and/or pickled beets etc. on the same slice of bread.

Condiments, such as mayonnaise, or mayonnaise-based dressing is also often included in some form. An old traditional replacement for butter on a piece of bread with herring is pork fat. There are many variations associated with the smørrebrød/smørbrød/smörgås and there are even special stores, cafés and restaurants (especially in Denmark) that specialize in them.
