Reunited and It Tastes So Good!

Stilton Velveeta & Jarlsberg Emmental have reunited in Oslo, Norway! One of the first things we did was go out for pizza.

This is the quattro formaggio (or fire ost) pizza we ate outside the Maschmanns Matmarked in Skøyen, a business district in the western area of the city. The pizza featured Bufala Mozzarella, Gorgonzola, Taleggio, and Grana, which are four cheeses we have enjoyed in the past. Jarls is particularly fond of Taleggio and Stilton pointed out that there is an ongoing rivalry among Italians as to which is better, Parmagiano or Grana. It usually comes down to a regional preference. Oh, and note how there just happens to be a vague Italian flag background created by the green table, white napkin, and red rug!

Those colors are repeated on the pizza itself. The original pizza Margherita was in fact created to honor the Queen Margherita with those colors using basil (green), mozzarella (white), and tomatoes (red). This day, we just tore our fresh basil leaves off a plant sitting on the table. Stilton couldn’t imagine doing this at a restaurant in the States!
