Our sixth meeting concentrated on Finnish culture and foods. We tasted some blood pancakes together with lingonberry jam and talked about other odd Finnish foods. During this time we also had cheese and tea tasting. Cheeses were a Castello mini selection and there was blue cheese, white cheese and three cream cheeses (pineapple-peanut, chive and pepper). We also had one white cheese made of goat milk. Vanessa had some Northern lights tea (in Finnish “Revontuli”), which is blueberry and mint tasting black tea. She also tasted my favorite black tea called Cheery rainy day (in Finnish Sadepäivän ilo).
We also talked about Finnish design in tableware and utensils, because I have a lot of Moomin mugs and we ate with Hackman utensils.
