‘How to Make Danish Open Sandwiches’ is written by author and podcaster, Steven Højlund (Ph.D.). Growing up in Denmark, Steven has always enjoyed the Danish open sandwiches and appreciated the many ‘rules’ governing their composition. Danes know instinctively how to compose each of the most popular open sandwiches from a lunch buffet at a canteen in Denmark. But, as Steven discovered looking at the lunch plates of his foreign colleagues, it is not obvious for everyone how to make a proper open sandwich with the right composition of toppings and garnish. He wrote this book to guide foreigners living in Denmark as well as people abroad wishing to know more about Danish cuisine and have fun making Danish open-faced sandwiches. ‘Skål’ and ‘velbekomme!’.
