Winter sandwiches

(article, Culinate staff)

So you're feeling like a sandwich, but it's still cold outside, and you've got months before a BLT with heirloom tomatoes is on the menu. Instead, whip up some of the open-faced sandwiches that the Scandinavians specialize in, known as smørrebrød, or "buttered bread." As NPR noted in January, the rustic-yet-elegant sandwiches are a winter-holiday tradition, complete with their own elaborate eating-and-drinking rituals (smoked salmon should only be eaten on white bread, not rye). Skol!
