The new wave of smorbrod in Denmark brought on the competition Årets Julesild (Christmas herring of the year), as herring is one of the popular christmas eats in Denmark.
The competition was arranged by the Copenhagen Hospitality College, with yours truly as chairman of the jury.
Six teams of one smorbrodmaiden and apprentice competed, and delivered a very fine level of smorbrod. I have judged in several smorbrod contests over the years, but never seen a level as high as this.
Here’s a small slideshow from the day, with pictures of participants and dishes:
