So, here’s the event I participated in last Tuesday. All of you Americans probably know all about Hellmann’s mayo but over here it’s not a well known brand and they want to change that. So they invited a bunch of bloggers to set up an Easter dinner and eat it too. I was in charge of setting the table, decorating, crafting etc. I didn’t actually set anything up before arrival, but just used what was available.
The location was beautiful, an old industrial building in the Stockholm port area. Concrete floors, huge windows, cast iron, it had it all if you like that kind of thing.
Tablecloths were available but we decided to keep it simple. The beautiful dishes and glasses are by Birgitta Watz who’s studio we were actually in. Talk about inspiring surroundings to work in.
The invited bloggers all cooked dishes using Hellmann’s mayo which was interesting since us Swedes don’t usually use mayo in desserts or bread. Love the cake topping with the broken Kinder eggs. Will need to steal that idea when I bake my next Easter cake. Which is probably never.
It was a veritable feast. Five food bloggers with at least a couple of dishes each + some made by a Hellmann’s chef. This wasn’t even all of it.
My favorites were the fish dishes, especially the horseradish, shrimp & egg in a lettuce leaf thingy by Mary on the right. Her blog, by the way, is b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l. I also met this hilarious guy who will soon be a published cook book author. Way to go Mattias!
As soon as I was done with my thing and it got later I got homesick (I know, I’m pathetic) and was one of the first to leave. A video was being shot during the event and if I don’t look too much of a dork in it I’ll share it before the end of the week.
