you cook what you get

Few weeks ago a friend asked me to be a part of a special event at the first organic food fair called Bio Messe Berlin.
The idea was to pick up all the left overs of the stalls at the end of the fair and combine with some chefs, friends and some volunteers to create some new dishes and give it to the people. Excellent I thought, I want to be a part of this.
Last weekend, warm and cloudy sky but nice.
You cannot imagine how much organic food we got. Breads, salad leaves, fruits, yoghurts, meat,vegan and vegetarian food. We have been hardly able to prepare all this stuff.
At the end of the day it was a lot of fun and thanks to all the helping people - wurstsack , Tante Hans , culinary misfits , slow food berlin and the exhibitors who  decided not to throw away the food.
