ISO Danish Caterer

Can anyone recommend a caterer who would be able to do 70-80 Danish open face sandwiches (smorrebrod) for a Christmas party? It is my Danish Grandparent's 60th wedding anniversary and we'd love to treat them to a good Danish meal (we have the Akvavit already!).

I know that the state of Danish cuisine in Toronto is pretty abysmal but am hoping someone knows of a caterer who can do this.

We aren't terribly picky about the options but along the lines of:

Roast Beef
Shrimp & Egg

  1. Have you inquired at the Danish Pastry Shop on Pape? Here is the link:
    If anyone would know they would.

      Good idea! I tried them and they recommended someone. Thanks!


      So Hansen;s and The Danish Pastry Shop, while bakeries, may be able to direct you?

      1. Any chance for DIY? I do this sort of thing at the holidays and source most everything thru Brandt, Starsky, IKEA, Dimp's, Costco. Even do DIY Akvavit after Aalborg all but disappeared.

          We thought of that and have done it in the past but for 80 sandwiches, don't think it will be feasible. Also, just so you know, Aalborg has been back at the LCBO for a couple of years now! As well as cherry heering.

            Only one type, though! I just snag a bottle of good Russian vodka and spice it to taste. Put one up this aft. for Xmas.

        2. I don't know if they cater, and it's possibly too far out of town for your purposes anyway, but Sunset Villa in Puslinch would have everything you need. It might be worth a phonecall at least to see if they can accommodate you with a delivery or pickup. You could order a la carte or go with a few party platters.

            Thanks. I called them and they can definitely do it but we would have to pick them and as you said, it is quite far.

          2. 20 years ago Danish Style on Kingston Road did these on their own Danish rye (or white as appropriate). No idea if they still do them or the horns of plenty...
