What kind of dish is this?
This is a Danish dish with buttered rye bread and various ingredients.
This is a dish that has existed since the Viking era (800-1050) and has evolved due to industrialization.
As Scandinavia has a long and harsh winter, various techniques for preserving food have been developed.
Rye bread, which has been eaten in Scandinavia for over 1000 years, will last longer because it is baked with sourdough.
Milk has been processed into butter and cheese, and meat and fish have been smoked or salted to enable long-term storage.
Vikings ate these ingredients with rye bread.
For hundreds of years since the Vikings, it was just a simple topping of ingredients on sliced bread.
But it changed in the late 19th century.
Industrialization has made it possible to produce agricultural products efficiently, and depending on the product, various ingredients can be obtained regardless of the season.
It is now possible to serve your favorite ingredients at any time, regardless of the season, creating a colorful and luxurious modern Smørrebrød.
I felt that this required plating techniques.
The Vikings were particular about their appearance, such as carefully caring for the beard, so I think their characteristics are reflected in this dish.
It was a dish where you can enjoy the fun and deliciousness of using bread as a canvas and what to draw with which ingredients.
