One dream was fullfilled since I could visit Grüne Woche in Berlin a couple of weeks ago. That is, just for a couple of hours, since I was in the city for other reasons. International Green Week was established in 1926 and is the most important of its kind, that is as an international exhibition of food, agriculture and horticultural industries. With more than 415,000 visitors this year. It was great! Above a chef from Poland is serving soup.
I must admit I tasted these blinis with caviar with a drop of vodka, even if it was quite early in the day. Some of the food samples are for free, but most of them you pay a small amount of money to try, like 1, 2 or 3 euro.
“All the world” is participating in Grüne Woche, and to experience them all I have to go back some other year. I am quite sure I will. This was really an event of my heart, lots of friendly people, and exciting, good food everywere. And drinks.
Both Denmark and Norway was represented by beer producers, among the food. Denmark really is a beer country, we are not. But things are changing and now there are a lot of small breweries even in Norway. Like the one represented above, from the old mining city of Røros. I have tasted their beer before, it is really good, like so many others from the new breweries. So now I have explained why I have been off my blog lately. Travelling, and not only to Berlin. There are more photos in my Grüne Woche photo gallery.
