Sort of a crisp-bread crostini with taleggio, a sharp blue cheese (Söderås blå) and my home made raspberry-strawberry preserves. Absolutely delicious.
The crisp bread is a recent find, it's made by Vilmas and is a sourdough spelt bread with several different types of seeds - pumpkin, sunflower and sesame were easily identified. It's very crisp and brittle, and very complex in flavor. A new favorite for sure.
The cheese - Söderås Blå - is locally produced in Rättvik, close to our cabin in Dalarna. The producer keeps sheep for milk, and has a café together with my favorite pottery artist, who made the gorgeous blue mug I showed yesterday. I'll tell you more about my latest visit there soon. For now, here's a picture of the cheese:
