My Smørrebrød design from the evening at Snaps & Rye 🙂
Recently featured as one of the top restaurants in the Evening Standard, Snaps & Rye certainly provides a feast for the eyes and tummy.
Founded by Kell & Jacqueline Skött, a husband & wife team, you can certainly see how much love has been put into this place & the food. It’s a Notting hill gem.
You will leave this place promising yourself that you’ll be back soon for more. I did!
We spent the evening of learning about the history & techniques of creating Danish delicacies. Afterwards we had a snitter tasting session. Yum!
The Smørrebrød tasting session at Snaps & Rye: vibrant, healthy, & delicious toppings.
Snitter is a piece of the Danish classic smørrebrød.
Smørrebrød is an open faced luxurious rye bread sandwich, a Danish favourite.
‘Smørrebrød: important to the Danes, just like pizza is to Italy, & noodles to Asia’. ~ Kell
The open faced sandwiches were delicious, & included toppings of red onion compote, horse radish, herring, herbs, home made cured organic salmon from the Faroe Islands.
Apparently organic salmon is healthier, with more toned muscle. They also use this to make sashimi and premium smoked pieces.
Everything was fresh, healthy, & tasted incredible.
Afterwards, we were invited to create some of our own snitter designs. The prize would be a trip to Copenhagen for two.

Everyone was fiercely concentrating on creating their designs, around the table were the beginnings of some beautiful creations. Such a creative bunch!
My friend @pasiondeviajar_was cleverly creating patterns on the smørrebrød, & made roses out of carrots. So inspiring! (see above).
Afterwards the Visit Denmark and Snaps & Rye teams judged the creations. I was shocked, but happy to win. :))
My design, just in case you missed it 🙂
It was a special evening, & the teams were so hospitable & lovely.
I can’t wait to visit Copenhagen & share it’s gems with you!
Do share if you have any recommendations. And let me know how you find Snaps & Rye.
Special thanks to Snaps & Rye & Visit Denmark for their hospitality. All opinions are my own.
