All in all the first day was already an amazing experience for me and Hanna and her teacher invited me to the Gala Event the next day which took place at the Kauppahalli.
I walked around the whole evening and watched the different chefs cooking their dishes – and of course took a lot of pictures from everything. The chefs decorated their stall with things from the country and some also brought some souvenirs and give aways.
There were a lot of nicely dressed guests to taste the international food and wine, served by the chefs and their assistants/students from TAMK. But you couldn’t only experience food but also Jazz Music and Capoeira.
I didn’t learn much Swedish the two days but it was a great experience to get to know different countries, their food and the chefs. And thanks to the international chefs I heard a lot of French, Spanish and German – so I definitely had some language experiences there. And I prepared a vocabulary list for Hanna in french, with a lot of food and kitchen vocabulary which we tried to learn and learn to pronounce them during we met at the events.
Thanks again to Hanna and her teachers, that they made this possible for me! I can just recommend this event to everybody who wants to experience an international flair and amazing food!
