Dinner at Terroirs

Some places are mentioned frequently on the blog, and Terroirs is definitely one of those places. The reasons are many; the convenience from my office (3 minute walk), their great wine list and bar snacks, their food and friendly staff and the comfortable atmosphere.

When Therése was visiting, we had supper here on the Saturday and although the West End seems so different on a Saturday night than on a weekday, we had a very enjoyable evening.

First we started with olives. These fresh sweet olives are almost impossible to find back in Sweden, so it was a must for Therése.

We then had some small plates to share, and the first was this full to the brim charkuterie board with saucisson, duck rillette, cornichons and pork terrine with pistachios. Really good, but very filling.

Next we had squid with spinach, chickpeas, chorizo and aioli. Amazingly good and something I will cook myself as well.

Traditional mussels in white wine and they were big and juicy.

Lastly, my favourite; toast with girolles, bone marrow and red wine. Settles any umami craving possible and so delicious. Will be back for this soon!

Friday food

Staying in the summer house means no internet, but that is a sacrifice I am willing to make, so instead of the usual Friday update I will show you what we like to nibble on on Fridays.

We really enjoy nibbles, but for dinner they need to be quite substantial. Pork rillette with pickled onions and cornichons is good, together with some nice crusted bread. And chakuterie; parma ham filled with a mixture of cream cheese and chopped sunblush tomatoes (it’s lovely!), chorizo and saucisson. We also shared a baked camembert, which is pure heaven. Adding onto the French theme we also had some proper French butter with sea salt crystals. Together with chilli mayo and crema di balsamico this was a lovely meal.
