Blog Action Day 2011 - Food...

I dagens anledning af Blog Action Dag 2011, bliver indlægget resten af indlægget på engelsk. #BAD11 er nemlig en international begivenhed med bloggere fra ikke mindre end 97 lande.

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.

Friday 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.

Bread, cheese, tomatoes and French's sennep.

Golden brown and delicious. Crispy on the outside and filled with melted yummy goodness.

Oh, and it was oozing lovely smoked cheese.

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.

Dejligt at du lægger en kommentar. Jeg læser dem alle og sætter stor pris på dem - men mine kræfter er små, så jeg besvarer desværre kun i begrænset omfang. Bær over med mig!
