Champaign-Urbana Smørrebrød Project returns

Mark Hartstein is at it again, this time with his Champaign-Urbana Smørrebrød Project (CUSP)

CUSP will send off the Corkscrew in Urbana with a Smørrebrød goodbye. From 3-6 p.m. on Saturday, February 22nd you can eat:

Danish open-face sandwiches called “smørrebrød”, buttered rye bread garnished with a wide variety of toppings. The hearty rye bread is housemade and we source our produce and groceries as locally as we can, except the imported Danish butter.

This month’s menu:

Sild: Pickled herring, Moore Family hen egg, pickled beet stems

Triptych: Blue Cheese, Triptych Brewing Blueberry Blonde soft jam, granola

Hanssen: Olive-oil confit Blue Moon potatoes, Blue Moon arugula, garlic (white anchovy on request)

Gravadlax: Cured organic Irish salmon, mustard-dill sauce, “everything” crumble

Leverpostej: The Urbana Butcher Shop braunswiger, onion, mustardseed caviar, parsely, potato chips

Each plate will cost $5-8 and we donate a dollar from each smørrebrød to the Eastern Illinois Foodbank

That’s a great deal. If you need further convincing, check out our article about the last one.
