The Danes are known for their love of traditional smørrebrød — open-faced sandwiches of buttered rye bread with meat, fish, or vegetables. Aamanns Deli & Take Away in Copenhagen offers this Danish classic, yet with a modern twist. Here, they pile them high with such delicacies as beet-cured hake, pork rillettes, and barrel-cured herring. A mighty fine sandwich indeed.
Fragrance & Feast in Paris
Owned by the only woman in France to hold three Michelin stars, La Dame de Pic offers a unique new concept. Chef Anne-Sophie Pic has teamed with Takasago perfumer, Philippe Bousseton, to create three fragrances that reflect the flavor pairings in her menus. Before being presented with menus, guests first experience the notes of a signature perfume and then carry those notes into their food choices. This is Parisian haute cuisine at its finest.
How to Make a Sandwich Parisian Style…
Terroir Parisien is Yannick Alleno’s newest offering in the Latin Quarter of Paris. With a sleek interior design and three Michelin stars, one wouldn’t expect one of the best things on the menu to be a sandwich in a bistro that prides itself on using fresh local ingredients to reimagine French classics. Yes, you read the correctly — a sandwich. But this is not any ole sandwich. No, this is a perfectly baked baguette filled with handmade veal sausage and topped with gribiche. It IS fabulous. The word is out about this bistro, so get there early or you will face a long wait at the bar, albeit martini in hand.
