The smørrebrød festival in Odense, Denmark

Open sandwich heaven at Hallernes Smørrebrød

The famous open-style sandwiches consist of dark rye bread with a mouth-watering selection of popular pålæg (toppings), that can be anything from thinly sliced meat to Danish-style liver pâté, smoked salmon, prawns and eggs, or even a combination of all of them.

The one-day festival dedicated these addictive nibbles is run by specialist sandwich-maker Vort Daglige Brød (Our Daily Bread), and based in the atmospheric street food market Storms Pakhus, in an old warehouse in the citys harbour area. Here a feast of smørrebrød will be served between 11.30am and 1pm, and all participants will have eight different pieces included in the price, plus a soft drink or a beer from the local brewery.

If you want to go full in on this Danish tradition, wash it all down with a strong shot of snaps (akvavit), a classic addition to this cornucopia of flavours.
