Start(er) of the week

Monday was never my favourite day of the week, but right now… couldn’t be further from the truth.

Rye Bread, Pancetta, Blue Cheese and Toasted Pistachios

During the weekend I bought some smoked pancetta. Also my Sunday afternoon is devoted to baking bread for the coming up week.

I’ve made rye bread this week, what I have topped with butter, pancetta, Cornish blue cheese and chopped toasted pistachios.

Saltiness of the pancetta gives a great boost for the flavours from the blue cheese, and a toasted pistachios adding the crunchy texture and nuttiness nicely completes the dish. Accompanied by my 2006 Cabarnet Sauvignon Barrique from the Blum vineyard, Villany. Splendid!
