    Ajme predivno ovo zvuči. Ja se nikako ne mogu naviknuti na heljdu, ali u ovoj kombinaciji bi mogla i pasati.
    Fotke su predivne i baš zovu na degustaciju. :)

    Ovo mnogo lepo izgleda. Ja sam za vikend napravila palačinke s heljdinim brašnom, pa ih onda filovala šumskim pečurkama i zapekla u rerni. Moj muž je zaključio da po ukusu liče na krvavicu (?!) Dakle, definitivno rustikalno :)
