Keep the chill of those long winter nights at bay with this warming recipe for Swedish soup and cheesy dipping sticks. The light, nutty flavour of cannellini beans along with aromatic rosemary is the perfect partner for those moreish cheese toasts, made with sourdough bread.
The complex flavour of Västerbottensost, which is aged for at least 14 months, provides richness to this hearty dish. Simple to prepare, spend less time in the kitchen this winter and more time snuggled up on the sofa with loved ones. Known as the ‘king of cheeses’ in Sweden, Västerbottensost has been made using the same secret recipe since 1872.
