This weekend takes place the Good Food Festival in Boui Boui Bilk (Düsseldorf).
As I already talked to you about the festival (check here for more information about what kind of food you could find last year at the Good Food Festival 2015 ) let me get straight to the point.
What did I like the most at the Food Festival 2016:
1. There are many local producers
This year I decided to go earlier (at 13.00, the moment the doors are opened) and it was a wise decision! The place was not too crowded so I had time enough to check all the different stands and to talk with the local producers.
2. New flavours are ready to be discovered!
- To start I opted for a veggie and gluten free Frittata (made with pumpkin, onion and apple) while a friend of mine tried a veggie burger with home made ketchup sauce.
- Then I could not resist to try some Süßkartoffeln (Sweet potatoes) with chutney and pumpkin sauce.
- As a dessert I tried the best vegan ice cream I have ever tried!
I am Love is an ice-cream bar located in Bochum and Essen. The merchant was really nice and provided me with information about the ingredients of the ice-creams (made with soy). Hazelnut flavour highly recommended 😉
3. There where special things that will redefine the way we understand cuisine
The moment I saw them I wanted to know more about this revolutionary concept.
The “DOC´s Essenz” essences are gonna shake up the traditional concept of cocktails. Just with a drop you can provide a drink with an intense new taste.
After a talk with the manufacturer I had the opportunity to add one essence to a home made cocktail. Not only the flavour but also the odor of the cocktail improved drastically after adding the chosen essence.
The product was so original that I just bought some samples to bring home. I wonder what will happen when I add one of them to a roast… 😉
4. You can find some traditional products
After talking with some producers and tasting different kind of products. I decided to buy some home made sauces and some french macarons.
- The sauces are made with natural ingredients produced in a farm closed to Düsseldorf. Check more information here: issbaldfertig
- The macarons are gluten free and manufactured in a french Pâtisserie which is coming soon to Flinger (Düsseldorf).
5. The classics will always remain
A part from all the food that I previously mentioned you can also find some classics like burgers, hot-dogs, german sausages, waffles and greek cheese.
