Nordic cuisine.

:-p haha

Scientist in a Skirt

So far I’ve encountered a few interesting foodstuffs since I’ve been on Svalbard. Chief amongst those is Brunost. This is a Norwegian delicacy, and it sounds pretty unappetising when you know that brunost means brown cheese. It isn’t strictly speaking a cheese, but caramelised brown whey in a cheese shaped block. It doesn’t sit and mature like a cheese does. You find it in a chiller cabinet at the supermarket in various bright coloured packages.
That doesn’t make it sound any more appetising does it?

Well let me tell you, its amazing! I love the stuff. Sliced thinly using a special cheese slicer it goes on waffles,  biscuits and toast (and probably other things). It is slightly sweet and slightly savoury and melts in the mouth. It goes perfectly with jam (I’ve got boysenberry at the moment) as it balances the sweetness beautifully. It seems to be eaten at breakfast…
