Norway Food Festival in Tokyo!

9:38:00 PM
Norway Food Festival
A little while ago the Norway-Japan Society arranged a Norway Food Festival in Tokyo, an event that also happened to be the first of its kind arranged by the society.

As a board member I helped planning out the event, and along with a couple of the other board members we brought along our own homemade Norwegian food for the participants. My boyfriend and I spent all Saturday evening making Norwegian meatballs, known as kjøttkake (meat cake) in Norwegian. I don't have any pictures of the meatballs, but here are some Norwegian waffles made by one of the other board members for the event:

The event was a great opportunity to introduce a bit of Norwegian culture to our participants. In addition to serving some Norwegian dishes we also demonstrated how to cook them as well. We did the same program twice, and during the event we had over 40 guests participating in the small office we had borrowed for the day.

At the end of our program we also had a small concert with my colleague Will, who is aiming to be a professional musician. He is American, but we had him sing his own version of the Norwegian artists A-ha and M2M. I don't have any videos of his performance available yet, but please feel free to check out his talent on soundcloud.
The Norway-Japan Society arranges many events throughout the year. If you're interested in learning more, please check out the society's homepage or Facebook page.
