Ever given paleo gourmet a try? While New Nordic Cuisine is all the rage these days, there are a number of restaurants serving the ancient Estonian cuisine. Among the dishes to try is karask, the original bread before bread, as well as wild boar, moose, and seal.
Estonian coastal folk have adored dish and seal meat for centuries. Fishermen and hunters have historically lived in little villages leaving behind a wealth of coastal heritage.
Given the opportunity, most Estonians are eager mushroom and berry pickers. The Estonian forest is also a home to wild boar, moose, and deer.
