It was time! All the hard work for the last 5 weeks had all built up to this moment, the Farm2Fork event sponsored by Rabobank.
This event was a place for all contributors to the food and agricultural industries to come together and celebrate all that they have done.
I had spent the night before and the whole morning setting up our massive ‘farm shed’ stand, and here is the final product:
The team I worked with generated so much interest in the company, which made the CEO very happy for the rest of the day!
There were a few celebrities at the event; we had The Dutch Royals who I managed to get a sneaky pic of as they walked past me:
The day consisted of speeches, networking, showcasing, eating and drinking. My favourite stall was a new business selling seaweed tagliatelle, this stuff had no carbs in it at all!
As the event drew to a close we were all taken outside to an area filled with food and drink trucks, and a live band.
Here is my team enjoying the free food:
- Pork dumplings
- Fish tacos
- Lamb with tzatziki
- New Hampshire crab cakes
- Thai sticky chicken
- Bread and olives
- Freshly shucked oysters
- Kanafe (a Persian version of creme brulee)
- Baked apple with Parmesan cheese and gingerbread (made by Elena from MasterChef)
It was a fantastic event, the food and the people made it extra special. I’m so glad I was part of it!
