'sol over gudhjem' means sun over gudhjem, a town on the coast of our island. this is a dish enjoyed locally but is also one that chefs fiercely compete over. with a hot smoked herring at the centre, this dish features rye bread, raw onions, radish, chives and its signature ingredient, a yellow raw egg yoke which makes the 'sun'. the fish is from a traditional gyotaku print, enhanced by the graphically representation of the other ingredients and the studding turquoise background, representing the bright colour of the sea that surrounds our island

printed from a real whole smoked herring using a traditional Japanese art form called gyotaku, or fish rubbing. the fish is brushed with ink then a cloth placed over it and pressed to form a direct print. this print is photographed and forms the basis of our herring designs.
hot smoked herring are a traditional food from our island, Bornholm. the distinctive chimneys of the smokehouses punctuate the landscape. the herring, hung on a rod through the eye are hot smoked over alder wood and turn 'from silver to gold' in the smoking process. all of the lovely wrinkles in the skin come from the smoking process and make for a iconic image.
