These heaped rye bread treats were popular with everyone from farmers and factory workers to the lavish urban elite, one hundred years ago. Until recently, Smørrebrød had fallen slightly out of fashion, but new trends in Denmark to focus on traditional dishes and ingredients have brought the handy lunch item back on the menu.
