Guinea fowl in France, braised in a good dark red wine from the Rhône Valley, like a Rasteau.

We fell in love with the Swedish shrimp sandwiches we ate in Stockholm. When we were back in the states, I had to get the brown dense bread mix from Ikea and make them at home. They are perfect for a hot summer's dinner.
