I’m finally back in the Faroe Islands! Polle’s brother picked us up at the airport, and when we got home, we had a delicious Faroese dinner with all the Faroese food that I love, including Skerpikjøt, which is dry-aged Faroese lamb or mutton leg.
Skerpikjøt tastes best on a slice of rye bread, sprinkled with salt, but many Faroese people would also eat it with Aromat, which for some reason is a hugely popular seasoning in the Faroe Islands. I also had a Sisu, which is a Faroese lemon soda that tastes a bit like Sprite, but 100 times better.
For dessert, we had a cream and custard filled choux pastry, which Polle’s brother claimed he had been up baking all night, but which the packaging revealed came from the local bake shop 🙂
It has been more than two years since my last visit, and a lot has happened since then. Polle’s brother’s house has now got a nice porch, and the family has a new member; a tiny white fur ball called Perla. She is a Coton de Tulear, which is a hypoallergenic, low-shedding dog, which can be hard to believe when you see that fluffy white coat, but the shedded hair apparently get stuck in the coat instead of falling off on mats and furniture.
