Koldtbords

On a relatively regular basis we get asked the question:

“Will you be doing……[insert obscure Scandinavian delicacy here]”

Until now it has beeen difficult to agree to these requests because we haven’t had a vehicle on which to introduce that pickled fish you tasted in Oslo in 1998.  This has changed with the introduction of our ‘Koldtbords’.

Koldtbord is a term usually used to describe a buffet style table of cold cuts where people can help themselves, but we don’t have space for that so we’re doing the choosing for you.

We have meat, fish and cheese option that will be teamed up with a mixture of homemade pickles and pickles provided by Sarah from York-based Puckett’s Pickles.  The koldtbord will come with a selection of bread to include light rye, our own caraway and rye crispbreads and lefse (a Norwegian potato flatbread).

Lefse are a Norwegian flatbread that includes potato and is cooked on a hotplate.

The boards will continue to develop over the next few weeks but here is a look at the kind of things you can expect:

The fish koldtbord currently includes home-cured gravlaks, pickled trout in mustard sauce and smoked peppered mackerel with a cucumber and sea beet salad.

We hope you like what you see and look forward to welcoming you into the cafe to give them a try.
