Wordless Wednesday

A delicious lunch hosted by the German Provincial Stands of Northrhine-Westfalia. Pork, sauerkraut and beets. Delicious!

As agricultural journalists, food usually ends up playing an important part of our meetings. Farmers, processors, chefs and hosts are usually anxious to showcase the food they’ve had a hand in creating. Here’s a look at some of the food we ate last month during the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists (IFAJ) executive meeting in Berlin, Germany, held during International Green Week.

This was like a custard or cheesecake, with raisins and apple syrup. The apply syrup was divine, but I wasn't a huge fan of the rest of it. However, certainly appreciated the hospitality!

 

Lunch at Switzerland stand - sausage, risotto, broccoli and carrots. We started with a green salad and rolls.

 

Since the 2012 IFAJ Congress is in Sweden, we were hosted at a reception at the Scandinavian Embassy and treated to some traditional food. Clockwise from the top, reindeer (which didn't look as much like liver as it does in this photo and tasted quite nice), risotto, shrimp, chocolate cup with a dollop of sour cream topped with cloudberry, white fish, caviar, smoked salmon, turnip, carrots and carrot puree and a potato dish. In the centre is a slice of moose meat. Thanks to colleague Adrian Krebs for hunting down the food while I babysat the drinks.
