The Passion for Food Festival, Gothenburg, 28 February – 2 March 2014, Eriksbergshallen, Gothenburg
Gothenburg’s foodie scene is buzzing more than ever before – the city was named the ‘Culinary Capital of Sweden 2012’ by Sweden´s Minister of Agriculture, Eskil Erlandsson, in recognition of it´s wealth and quality of natural produce.
The Passion for Food Festival is an established event in Gothenburg, where food enthusiasts can find an exciting range of handpicked producers, as well as ingredients from quality suppliers of food and drinks.
Pick up tips and ideas about cooking at the festival’s Cookery School. You will meet a number of well known chefs who will offer advice on ingredients and cooking.
At the exhibition you will find a selection of drinks, often presented as a complement to the food – wine, beer and champagne, but also new, exciting alcohol-free alternatives. Drink coupons for wine and beer tasting can be bought at the event.
Do not miss tastings and lectures, where you can participate in tasting wine, beer or spirits and hear interesting talks on subjects such as chocolate, knives, olive oils and much more.
There will be a cook-off between four of Sweden’s top chefs, including the legendary Leif Mannerström from Gothenburg, who previously ran the Michelin-star restaurant Sjömagasinet.
There will also be a People’s Omelette Championships, an exciting and inspiring competition, based around three eggs, pepper and a dash of water!
Visit the Taste of West Sweden stand:
Sample some of the taste bud-tantalising organic produce offered by a selection of Taste of West Sweden accredited restaurants and producers exhibiting at the festival (a network of 25 gastronomic eateries that make the most of West Sweden’s first-class produce).
The west coast’s shellfish, such as lobster and oysters, are among the best in the world. The inland forests provide a variety of game, while other districts produce fine cheeses. This fertile agricultural land is ideal for growing grain and raising animals in the best organic traditions. The restaurants serve up local, naturally-sourced food and are located in an array of beautiful settings – islands, deep forests and rich farmlands.
