My friends and I had the chance to see the annual celebration of the Gothenburg Culture Festival, locally known as Göteborgs Kulturkalas. The 7-day fete started on the 16th of August and ends today, the 21st. We went to Gustav Adolfs Torg where we discovered foods from different nations. The foods were not gratis though. But we couldn’t just stare and admire so we went home broke at the end of the day. Here are the culprits!
Who would say no to this sweets from England. My friend couldn’t decide which of these she would bring home to her family.
We skipped the cheese since we’re not into it. I don’t know where this from but hubby would have definitely found his favorite in this corner.
These Dutch Pancakes made me giggle like a child. They’re small and thin though with sweet fillings. Yummy!
I’m not quite sure what this is but it looks like small pirogue. Polish pirogues! Choose your own fillings.
We opted for this spicy Thai casserole for lunch. The queue was long but we managed to get our share for 60.00 sek. Choose one or all to go with rice or noodle.
The Spaniards made sure to bring their Paella in Gothenburg. Why not? It’s Gothenburg Culture Festival! We just satisfied ourselves by looking on. Seemed there were many visitors who liked Paella.
The French delicacies were our dessert. Those small pies were sinfully appealing to the eyes as well as to the palate. Really worth the price. We brought home Italian sweet nuts to complete the day. These are more foods from other nations but I can’t cover them all here. If you visit Gothenburg sometime, make sure it’s August and you’ll never miss all the fun at the Gothenburg Culture Festival – from foods to concert and sightseeing.

I love going to fairs and food festivals. Great shots.
The food looks delicious. I love to try those Dutch pancakes too.
OMG I would have had a blast there. Paella is one of my all time favorites and the dutch pancakes look awesome. What a neat thing to be able to check out.
I love food trips! I think we are lucky Asia is known for having so much food, right? 😉

..Vibrant Gothenburg explodes with colour during August thanks to the Gothenburg Culture Festival held 16-21 August 2011. Theres a fantastic outdoor dining and bar culture in Gothenburg – even better during the peak of summer when the Culture Festival takes place so visitors can also take time out to relax and unwind in one of the citys many food and drink hotspots. Last years festival saw almost one million visitors light up the city and with more activity than ever before the 2011 Gothenburg Culture Festival is expected to be the best yet.

So good! I’ve been to Gothenburg few years ago in late August, and must have missed this festival :(. Next time (it’s a promise to myself). I think I would stay near the sweets all day long though
I vote for the Dutch Pancakes as well
