Geitost or sweet cheese from goats milk

This cheese is the ultimate Norwegian icon and treasure.
Its made from goats milk, goats cream and goats whey
Its sweet and have quite strong taste.

It works well on any bread, cracker or crisp bread.
Its for the advanced palate maybe..
but I love it!

You seem brave enough! On that honey bread, and a bit of butter underneath, it would taste lovely!proillon

I've never tasted it. When something is about food i never say "no" to a taste.

Le Chien: Have you tasted it? I guess if you know where to go, you can find where to buy it! There is more Norwagians living in the US than it is in Norway, if you count in all the people who emigrated... so some of them must have brought the tradition over..

Antigoni: I mostly do too, but I might get a bit skeptical to raw fish and meat..

I'm one (well, half) of those Norwegian immigrants (although I don't look it) My Grandpa had blond hair and blue eyes. His parents came over in the early 1900's. Sadly, I don't know the language or the food! It's amazing how strong social pressure was to assimilate at that time.

tavolini: How interesting! Do you know where he came from in Norway? Maybe we're related! (you never know, she said optimistically) It was loads of people who fled poverty hoping for a better life in the US late 1800's and early 1900's.
