Strawberries and Brie and a Little Bit of Mint



That's all you need for a sweet summer mouthful (plus it's a dessert and cheese course in one). I used Finnish Valio Brie - my current favourite.

Eestikeelne 'retsept' siin.

Wow- I just happened to look at the old Daring Bakers site and the word Estonian jumped out at me. I am amazed. I lived in Tallinn for 4 months and Tartu for a year back in 1999-2000 and fell in love with it. The rhubarb cake made me laugh because we were fed that all the time. Anyway, glad I found your blog. It is amazing.

I was just writing about how great a combination fruit and cheese are - but never would have thought of this one. I'm so glad you dreamed it up, so I have another fruit and cheese combo to add to my collection. Mint is the perfect finishing touch.

Hi Pille..
excuse me if it's a naive or stupid question...what are the curls on the top of the cocktail sticks?

best regards

Where did you find those elegant cocktail sticks? That looks so perfect for starters with champagne.

Tehtud! Valio juustud on ka minu lemmikud, rääkimata maasudest! Nüüd aga on 3 kasti 3 päevaga kahjuks otsas!

Looks fantastic. I love fruit and cheese. Hey, ss it too late to tell you that I'll be in Estonia (Tallinn) by tomorrow night? Spending two days there before I travel to Russia. I hope to sample some local delicacies... Thanks for inspiring me with your blog.

How simple and how beautiful! Seeing as strawberries are often served with a cheeseboard, this is surely a classic combination :)
