International Green Week:
Since 1926, international exhibitors from more than 130 countries have created a marketplace of cultures at Green Week where they present their regional/national specialties.
A wide range of food and beverages from all over the world offers visitors a unique variety of tastes without having to get on a plane.
Asian countries such as Thailand, Japan, China and India present exotic fruits (incl. durian), spicy curries and papadam while displaying their countries’ cultural highlights in traditional, colorful garments.
Scandinavia reveals its Nordic style with Norway, Finland and Sweden all at the beautiful Hygge stand. The region is a big winner with reindeer-meat appetizers, a wide array of wild fish and delicious licorice ice cream.
What else has Europe to offer? Along with the Baltic countries of Latvia and Lithuania, Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary impressively display their incomparable art of baking.
The alpine regions of Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria and Italy also make the epicurean heart of every cheese, sausage and salami lover beat faster. Have you ever rolled a cheese wheel or tasted horseradish that makes your eyes water?
Western Europe isn’t far away either:
At the France stand gourmets can slurp up fresh oysters with a colorful selection of wines and then have some violet-flavored macarons for dessert.The Netherlands stand welcomes its guests with a variety of tulips, traditional poffertjes – with or without a shot of booze – as well as “Pommes Spezial”.
Culinary globetrotters can sample dried bison meat, desserts made with rose jam or delight in a hibiscus drink with baobab fruit, Kenana sugar from the White Nile and red lentil rolls.
