Estonian Superfoods brings you easy to follow recipes from Estonia's top chefs. This month's special is blackcurrant, perhaps the most popular berry in Estonia, filling our tables in the summer and stored in the pantry in jam and juice form over winter. We travelled to the idyllic seaside village of Kaberneeme to bring you the latest blackcurrant recipes by the head chef of restaurant OKO.
