This years topic for Blog Action Day is food. For me as a foodblogger this is a great opportunity to write something a little different about food than I usually do. There are many things I could write about and it has been a little difficult to pick a subject. Should I write about the things closest to my heart? Then I would write about organic food, quality produce, animal welfare and my new found passion: reducing unnecessary waste of edible scraps and leftovers. But wait - that's what I already write about on a regular basis.
It is said that variety is the spice of life - and I couldn't agree more. So my topic of choice is just that: variety. I eat a lot of different food items - and I try to get as much variety in my diet as possible. I'm a fan of different flavors and textures - and I love to explore them.
Photo borrowed from RossiniFriday night I had a rare opportunity to taste genuine caviar from The White Sturgeon. I had caviar before - but NEVER like this.
I was completely blown away by both the flavor and the texture. I would never have imagined that caviar could have such fatty richness and depth in flavor - and at the same time it felt almost sparkling on the tip of the tongue. I will never forget the saltiness and the richness. The caviar was accompanied by an avocado mousse, paper thin toast and a glass of champagne 1. Cru "Carte Blanche" Bernard-Pitos.
On Saturday I made a very humble lunch in contrast to the fancy dinner from the night before: a grilled cheese sandwich.
Simple ingredients, no surprises there. And then again - the cheese was an hay-smoked organic Gou®Dan.
Golden brown and delicious. Crispy on the outside and filled with melted yummy goodness.
So, do I prefer caviar or grilled cheese? Honestly - I like them both equally much. Posh or plain, it's all about variety.
Eat everything the world have to offer.
