Manna – a different food exhibition

(phtoto: http://www.mannautstallningen.nu/)

    How many insects does it take to make a hamburger?
    How do you fit hundreds of litres of water into one bottle of beer?
    What do researchers really say about the environmental benefits of organic farming?
    Can we eat our way to sustainable development?
    All of this – and much more – is taken up in Manna, a different exhibition about food, the environment and our hidden dependence on nature.

On my way to work this morning I saw an ad for “Manna – a different food exhibition”. The exhibition was first shown in Stockholm in 2004 and has been on tour around Sweden. But soon, from September 30th until October 29th, the exhibition is back in Stockholm and I will definately go there. You can find more information, both in Swedish and English, on Manna’s homepage.fruit 1910 company mp31996 mp3 firemans prayer ball charliemaster 2ba mp3baci mp3 24000cadillac mp3 1972mp3 louisiana 1927lady mp3 1at2fast mp3 2furious Map

    I bought the Manna cookbook some time ago and it is really good! I didn´t know about the exhibition though.
    By the way, Grattis på namnsdagen!

    Hello Dagmar! It is always a pleasure to take a journey in the food world with you! It’s nice to know that you are bringing together many “foodies” by sharing your thoughts, recipes, experiences, etc..(I have made a similar dish to the baked potato & blue cheese; I vary it sometimes by cubing the raw potatoes (skins included) and making a sauce with the rest of the ingredients; then I mix it all and bake it in a casserole.It’s great for a party buffet and easier for guests to eat)..I am not sure if I told yo that I live in Tampa, Florida with my partner, Jared, and our “four-legged children”: Zosia (cat), Fletcher (dog), Roger (dog), and Nickolai (cat)..We have a few citrus trees in the yard and the Key Lime tree is producing many fruits so it looks like this weekend I’ll be making a Key Lime pie..Do you have any interesting recipes that call for lime as a major ingredient?

    Hi Ron!

    Thanks, you’re so kind :-) Zosia is a Polish name, but I guess that you already knew that. I really envy your citrus trees… One thing that I come to think about is doing a lime tart (http://www.acatinthekitchen.com/?p=89 , just substitute the lemon in the lemon tart with a few limes instead). Hmmm….Other things you could do is lime marmalade, juice, ice cream, chicken with lime (marinate chicken in lime jucie and garlic) etc etc.

    Dzien dobry, Dagmar! Thanks for the ideas; I never thought about lime marmalade but that may be the best choice! I love the sweet & bitter & sour taste of marmalades (and they make a great base for marinades & other sauces in a pinch). As for Zosia, she has a longer name: Zoia Zygielbojm Zamojska – very old Polish – and Nickolai is ” Nickoali Andreyevich Kazanovkii” – my cats always have 3 names for some odd reason…Now, off to the kitchen for the marmalade!

    Hello Dagmar! The marmalade was a great idea and realtively quick to make. Now I’ll have a little “sunshine flavor in a jar” to send to my parents and brothers in New York. I also made a simple syrup with lime so I can make a quick glass of limeade (instead of lemonade). One of my couins in the area is having a Halloween Party tonight so I’ll bring a bag of limes for the guests to use if they are drinking tequila..I have been reviewing some of the previous pages in your blog and you have some fantastic recipes & ideas. Well, I have to do some shopping and housecleaning today, “moja rodzina” is very big and that means there is always someone visitng someone else who then wants to visit me; tomorrow it’s 2 cousins from Manhattan and antoher cousin & her family from St. Augustine(on the other side of Florida). I think you may appreciate the expression “Boze kochana” that I use when there are some many things to do and so little time..and thanks to you, I will be making the chicken dijonaise for my guests. Enjoy the remainder of your weekend!

    Ron: Oh, the marmalade sounds great! I bet that it tastes excellent! And lime syrup, mmm yummy :-)

    I hope that you had a great weekend with your rodzina and that you and your guests liked the chicken dijonnaise!

    I wish more people would write blogs like this that are actually fun to read. With all the fluff floating around on the net, it is rare to read a blog like yours instead.

    it is still better to adhere on organic farming because the fruits and vegetables does not contain those harmful chemicals..:~
