Some claim that smørrebrød, or open sandwiches, is the only truly Danish contribution to the world gastronomy. Covering dark rye bread with your preferred meat, fish or spread is an age-old Danish tradition, but became a celebrated luxury treat in the Danish bourgeoisie in the 1890s, about the same time as Kurhotel Skodsborg was originally opened. Thus it only seems fitting that our chefs have re-interpreted this unique Danish delicacy, updating it into a paleo version.
Paleo bread ensures you unsaturated fats and e vitamins
The traditional Danish rye bread, normally used for smørrebrød, has many qualities, but by exchanging the rye bread with paleo bread, we ensure our guests a large dose of the unsaturated fats and e vitamins (full of antioxidants) which are healthy, and essential for a lot of your body’s functions.
Paleo bread mainly consists of whole kernels, whole nuts, seeds and egg. The healthy fats are especially important for absorption of important fat-soluble vitamins, your joints, your blood circulation and your cholesterol level.
If you choose our avocado smørrebrød you “double up” on the health benefits from unsaturated fats and important antioxidants.
Paleo smørrebrød is the perfect between-the-meals-snack
When you feel squeamish after your workout, a wellness treatment or in the middle of the afternoon paleo smørrebrød is the perfect between-the-meals-snack (as opposed to sugary cakes or even fruits) as the fats ensure you lasting energy levels, and proper nourishment.
Our founder, Dr Carl Ottosen, to a certain extent considered healthy, preferably raw, food as medicine; and it is truly in his spirit that we have introduced the paleo smørrebrød.
Only, to our minds, our ‘medicine’ is tastier and more aesthetically pleasing than the late Dr Ottosen’s.
