As it was lunchtime, we had smørrebrød (open sandwiches). My favorite was Chicken and Lovage Salad on Rye Bread:
One of our neighbors on the allotments grows lovage, so I'm now working up the courage to ask for a cutting. The smørrebrød were served with Baked Asparagus Salad, which was very easy (just a few minutes in the oven) and nicely lemony. Luckily we do have our own asparagus crop, so we just need to keep our fingers crossed for a good season...
But my favorite part of the demonstration was, of course, dessert!
Our first dessert was Rhubarb Trifle, which was so delicious one lady actually interrupted the demonstration to ask for seconds! The Barbie-pink rhubarb stalks were baked with sugar, then layered with crumbled homemade almond macaroons and vanilla cream:
And we finished with Cold Buttermilk Lemon Soup with crumbled biscotti:
While I'm not a big fan of hot soups, I adore cold soups, and this one was amazing! Trina serves it not only for dessert but as a light meal or afternoon snack, and apparently it's a great favorite with Danish children (her own included). I'll most definitely be making a batch--probably several--when warmer weather arrives...hopefully soon!
