  • For herb sandwiches, lightly butter the bread slices. Combine herbs in a bowl, then scatter herbs over half the buttered slices. Sandwich with remaining bread and cut four rounds from each sandwich using a 5cm-diameter cutter. Cover sandwiches with a dampened piece of absorbent paper until required and serve with caviar over ice, crème fraîche and onion to the side.
