This makes me remember my one important culinary experience in Helsinki last year.
There is an ancient, probably quite ancient dish called: „ Vorschmack“. I stumbled upon it in a cookbook which was an east german translation of a russian antropologist who wrote about the different cuisines in the then Soviet union and their history. It intrigued me, because it is a german word and I thought, might be an old jewish recipe whose name survived in the russian language. I read and tried to find out more, and yes, I was right.
And there was a restaurant in Helsinki where Vorschmack was on the regular menue!!
And I decided to go there and, once in my lifetime, to experience the taste of Vorschmack. ( It is quite difficult to cook at home, for my abilities, at last..) .
So I went there and I knew in an instant that I walked into a very expensive restaurant, the air smelled rich and of lobster, and everything.
It made me poorer, but I ordered the Vorschmack and something else as the main dish I donˋt remember.
Everything was rich, and there was much cream and I had a hard time eating everything,😄 .
So yes, I had a hard time with this meal as well😄.
But ok, now I know how Vorschmack tastes like.
I wonˋ t ever eat it again, not to my taste, I do not like herring, but so what!
I will never forget this evening, will never forget Worlds at Helsinki for many reasons..😊.
I hope I was not rambling too much, but there is no other place I can tell my Helsinki— moments like here...😊.
and may everything agree with everyone at Helsinki 2018!😊😊
... being able to taste some Vorschmack was like a dream come true..as was Worlds...😊
