What I Ate in Europe

As promised, these are food pics of my trip.

In Denmark, I stayed in a hotel and these are the breakfast items. Strangely, I didn't get 'sick' of them even though I ate them for 6 days, because there's always fresh breads and rolls from the oven.



As our hotel is at the surburb area(close to the training centre, but not the city), dinner became a problem. I had yogurt on some days and salads on others. Finally had a feast at the hotel restaurant on the last night.

A stunning presentation for the appetizer, consisting of Italian sausage, cheeses and pasta 'sticks', served on a slab of..... granite!

Next up, the fish starter resting on a bed of olives, sundried tomatoes and capers. The portion is so big, could have passed off as a main course.

My first time eating veal, very tender and cooked to perfection. See the slightly pink inside?

Finally, dessert time. I had the following: Passionfruit, raspberry, black berries and rhurbarb sorbet.

My friend's choice: refreshing and light sorbet with a pudding and cake base.

I had only one-and-a-half days in Sweden. Staying in a Bed & Breakfast cottage, we were treated to a sumptious Swedish breakfast the following morning.

The breakfast corner

Once again, we have various types of cereals, to pair with different-flavoured yogurts.

Different types of rye breads and crackers, to go with the spreads and cheeses.

Isn't this egg holder cute? The lady owner of this B&B also sells knick knacks and souvenirs like this. Not cheap though, so I didn't buy.

Went walking in the city area and popped into a restaurant called Restaurant C&C for lunch. Look what we had:

This place is famous for their wild game, so my friend ordered a 'exotic' starter, reminds me of Rudolph(Santa Clau's reindeer)

We had dessert at another cafe, this is recommended by the staff, the 'Dessert of the Cafe'. It consists of three layers - biscuit base, caramel and finally chocolate mousse and dusted with cocoa powder and topped with passionfruit.

That's all for my 'food journey. Hope you all enjoy feasting your eyes on them as much as I enjoyed eating them.

Connie,

Heh, I never bother to look at the surrounding pple, just concentrating on taking the pics. But I know for there was a little boy staring at our table during the dinner at the hotel restaurant. My friend kind of stared at him, he quickly looked away. *lol*

Edith, it’s my pleasure. The trip was good, except for the baggage hiccup. I had a fun time taking pics of the food and flowers.

Angie,
A mouth-watering write-up!
Love the look of the last dessert, so sophisticated...
Also, didn't know rhubarb can be used in a savoury main dish as well...

myCoffee said...

Wow, looks like such a wonderful trip! Makes me yearn to go too...

Angie said...

SD, this dessert sure looks classy isn't it? As for the rhurbarb, I personally much prefer it in the sorbet than the main meal. Actually first time tasting rhurbarb, not very common here.

Mycoffee, how abt planning a Europe trip? :p But not cheap though. I'm lucky in the sense that it's a working trip so much of my expenses are paid for.

Hi Angie,
Read your write-up about Scandinavia - it is fun, because I am a Singaporean living in Sweden! You have such beautiful pics and interesting observations! One thing I was wondering, the main course your friend took - it is called "pyttipanna" and as to my knowledge - it consists of potatoes, sausage and preserved beetroot! Hence the reddish colour influence on the dish. I could send you a recipe of it if you'd like! In the meantime, do write more, coz' I love it!

Hi Justina,

Thanks for dropping by :). And thanks for enlightening me on Pyttipanna, the beetroot is 'hidden' under the egg. Her plate was a reddish purple color after the meal. Sweden is a beautiful place, how cool, you're living there.
