As the only furry from my country attending EF (out of all three of us :P), I probably won't be able to man the table most of the time, but I like this idea! Hopefully I can get my table-neighbor to watch over the dates to make sure everyone's sharing nicely while I'm off tasting the other snacks. :3

My brother once brought some very sweet stuff from the UAE, not sure if the food actually originated from there, but it sure was middle-eastern (deadly amount of honey :P  actually pistachios coated with something and honey, they looked like mini-cakes).  Anyway, do you have some sweets in SA that you could bring?  Dates are not particularly my favourite thing, but I'm curious what else is common there.


Hmmm.. On the other hand, is there anyone from Iceland coming to EF and this little event? :D  Bring some salted dried fish :D  (To challenge the Belgian cheese in smell :P)

"we offer food to our guest that wasn't discussed with the hotel beforehand"

What are the chances that they'll say okay if we do tell them about this event?

Because it will be tasting only. I'll update you guys shortly after I've arranged the room and come with the further details about the event. It won't be eating to your hearts content but just getting a piece/slice/bit/sip of what's there and socializing. If you want to eat your belly full you are not at the right place here ;)

Stay tuned!

I can bring some goodies too :3
If someone want something specific just tell me and will try to find here  ;D

Rodizio ^^

Humm, we call rodizio here when you go on a restaurant who do it, like  ( pasta rodizio ) , they serves a lot of types of pasta, or (pizza rodizio)  a lot of types of pizza
you can have many types of rodizio since the food in question have many preparation modes.
If no one ask for something from here, will try to find something taste that you can't find outside here to share :3

I do want to note that before everybody invites himself and sets up tradings that this event will probably have a limit to the amount of people who can participate. We will have one room for it and it will go on a first come first serve basis. After I got the room arranged I will contact everybody giving them the final details. I will keep the main post updated when I get more details so keep track on it in the upcoming days.

Did you notice Riffuchs post on the previous page indicating that he could offer a room  in the evening?

Yeah I'm already arranging things with him. Still means there is a limit the room can hold ;)

*Woof*

Please don't bring strong smelling food (or beverages) to that event. We had some furs with cheese (it was from Switzerland if I remember correctly) at the Ringberg Hotel. Though the cheesed tasted very well, three levels of lobby were smelling so badly, that one nearly wanted to puke. Also the hotel crew wasn't too pleased. As far as I know, nothing 'bad' happened, but I could imagine, that the Maritim might charge EF some additional cleaning fee or something... So please, no smelling cheese or fish.

Also, the following is very important for anyone not from the European Union. You may not bring meat or anything made of milk (yoghurt, cheese, ...) from outside the European Union. Also there is some regulation about the amount of alcohol. I would advise everyone to check with the duty regulations before bringing something with them.

Since some people were wondering.

You aren't forced to stay till the end. After it starts you are free to go. Of course I would like to not see everybody leave in 5 minutes but you aren't chained to this event. You are free to go where you want.
