What we bring home from Estonia

As most of you know Steven loves most things Estonian. Diane loves it too especially the chocolate! We thought it would be humorous to take a picture of all of the food we brought back from our recent trip to Estonia. If we could there would be much more food in the picture such as Tiiu's tomatoes (for Diane!), herring, sour cream (Estonian sour cream is the best), porridge, smoked fish, blueberries (they are plentiful and much cheaper then in Budapest), Tiiu's fresh dill pickles and the list goes on.

The "Must" bread is Estonia's delicious black bread. We can buy German-style black bread at Aldi in Budapest but it isn't the same. Lots of chocolate! Of course some Estonian vodka. And over 2L of Vana Tallinn which is a yummy liqueur.

I was with you until you described Vana Tallinn as a "yummy liquor"...think I'll have to disagree with you on that one!

Glad to hear that you had such a wonderful visit to Eestimaa!

Audrey!? Vana Tallinn is the best!

I know is not for everyone. I think it was created in the 1960s, so its no so "vana."

Hello/Tere Diane and Steven,

Have you ever tried the creamy vana Tallinn? :)

I'm Hungarian, and my boyfriend is Estonian. :) It was very nice to read your blog.
I'm very sad, because I can not get such black bread, like in Estonia. Here, in Hungary, we dont have black bread. I only could buy Fazer Crips, and that's all.

(Vana Tallinn is the best. I like everything, what is Estonian and Hungarian :)

Next time, try Joulucider... It's very good... :)

(Sorry for the grammar-mistakes, my english isnt so good)
