The "How'd You Do That?" Bread Trick
Here's an elegant but easy way to present what's essentially buttered bread. You start with a loaf of thinly sliced cocktail pumpernickel. Spread horseradish-spiked butter on one slice, cover with another and continue until you've got a stack of six slices. Refrigerate until the layers are well "glued" together, then cut each stack vertically and voila: layer-cake-like slices of bread that are lovely alongside smoked salmon, or sliced cucumber or radish.
