Garlic toasts with Kumato tomatoes & Serrano ham served with Belgian Oude Geuze beer

tasty food!

Read on how I made it!

Don’t you want to put it right into your mouth????

Recently, my husband made these lovely tapas for me. We had them 1 hour before dinner. He served them with a good glass of Oude Geuze, from the brand : Mort Subite.

This is a Belgian famous beer. My husband likes Oude Geuze. This Mort Subite one is a bit more sweet than the other brands. The colour is amber, it tastes between sweet & sour. Its alcohol percentage is: 4.5 %. Oude Geuze, its taste goes wonderfully well with the Serrano ham.

Oude Geuze fom Mort Subite is a mix from old & young Lambic beers. It is not filtered.
Maybe you could find this special beer in a beer shop where they sell international beers.
For more info visit the website from Mort Subite in English :
Recipe: For 2 persons, each 2 tapas
4 Kumato tomatoes, cleaned, stalks & bottom cut out, cut up into little pieces
4 thin slices of bread, sourdough tastes great!

4 teaspoons of the best olive oil
4 slices of Serrano ham
Black pepper, grinned

2. Rub the toasts in with the garlic.

  1. My husband loves to try new beers – I’ll show him this and perhaps we might find it here (fingers crossed). This taps looks marvelous; I’ve tasted Serrano ham on only a few occasions but I remember how delicious it is. From your description of the beer, it certainly sounds like a great pairing!

  2. What a yummy toast – I’m making it for lunch today (have to sub a different kind of ham), wish I had the Belgian beer – we love it!

  3. I just love geuze beer and cannot find it up in my little section of the world. I bet that pairing was perfect. Looks very yummy and a great way to start a meal!

  4. I love it when your husband cooks, because that means that you can rest a while Sophie! With all of your good cooking, you deserve some rest!

  5. I love those tapas! Perfect lunch for me. I frequently make it, rubbing the warm toast with garlic and just topping with tomatoes and a basil leaf, but the Serrano ham is the perfect addition.

  6. That’s very sweet of your husband! They look perfect! I’m going to see if our local wine shop has this beer – I love trying new ones 🙂

  7. What a great husband! The toasts sound really good. Of course, what could be bad about garlic, tomato and bread? Yummy!

  8. Sophie, what a simple and tasty treat to have before supper. This is the kind of food I just love. I always say that the men make the best food lol. After saying that I better leave or I’ll get slapped lol.

  9. My oh my, this looks scrummy. I have never seen this beer before, and I don’t suppose I will, this is Oklahoma after all. Maybe on my next visit to England.

  10. Sounds like a great combination, Sophie! Belgian beer is rightfully famous, and I need to expand my experience with it. I’ll definitely look for Oude Geuze one of these days. And what a delicious looking photo! I’m sure the toast with tomatoes and ham tasted great!

  11. You’re killing me! That looks scrumptious! I come from an Alsatian beer-brewing family and it still pains me that beer is off limits due to my Celiac. Enjoy some of this for me. The Belgians make some of the finest brews in the world – as well as frites, chocolate…

  12. wow, sophie–that husband of yours is a keeper! any man who knows how to properly combine flavors and actually does it is a winner in my book. 🙂

  13. I’ve never heard of kumato tomatoes. will have to look that up. but i love any kind of tomatoes :)when my sister and i were little, we used to make what we now know as “tapas” as late night snacks for our parents.

  14. My friend is a flight attendant with Delta Airlines and has brought us beer from Germany, Czech, Holland, and other places. We love trying them! It’s so exciting to figure out which foods to pair them with.Love your blog!Lacy

  16. He Sofie! Wat leuk iemand uit Belgie… 🙂 Zo lekker dichtbij! Love your blog and this recipe seems delicious to me. I know Mort Subite, if only by name, by I think my boyfriend probably has drank it since we go to Belgium often and he loves beer!
