The Appetizer with a "Wait—How'd You Do That?" 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 nicely stuck together, then cut each stack vertically and ta-da: layer-cake-like slices of bread that are lovely alongside smoked salmon, or sliced cucumber or radish.
