Photography student Chris Tonnesen elevates the hot dog to new artistic heights in this image of a Nordic Deerdog. Assembled by Tonnesen according to the specifications of John Michael Jensen, owner of John’s Hotdog Deli in Copenhagen, Denmark, this lovely link is topped with homemade hawthorn mustard, chanterelle remoulade, and lingonberry-red onion chutney.
Summer means hot dogs. Whether you’re roasting weenies over a campfire, chowing down on a foot-long at the ball game, or cooking up franks on the grill, hot dogs seem to be ever-present at warm weather events. A plain frankfurter is a delicious treat, but with tasty toppings like mustard, relish, onions, ketchup, sauerkraut, pickles, hot peppers, chili, and cheese, it’s hard not to indulge.
