Some recent food
The buffet plate from the Vasterbotten Cheese Award - delicious asparagus pie, chicken salad with avocado, roasted red pepper soup, super bread with cheesey butter and a beet carpaccio with pumpkin seeds. Everything had Vasterbotten Cheese, of course.
The dessert from my work conference last weekend. A great idea, but so-so in execution. The chocolate cake was a bit dry, and placed on a *very* dry biscuit of some sorts. The pistachio mousse was quite tasty, but that color *has* to be artificial. (As was the taste, I think.) Then there was some sort of coffee "caramel" according to the menu, but I couldn't detect anything caramelly about the cream. Oh well.
