Last year it was big fun :) We are preparing some hungarian specialties.
As I remember, the "zsírosdeszka" with onion made some success :)

Awesome! :D Since it's allowed this year to empty your fridge (as long as the beverages are right net to the fridge, so that they can see you didn't consume them) and use it for other things, I'll definitely be bringing some 'havregrynskugler'! It's a traditional christmas candy her ein Denmark, but it's soooooo gooood I could just eat it all year 'round! XD

Swedes please store some påskmust and bring it to EF :)  I know it's hard, because it's so good and you want to drink it yourselves! :)

Awesome :D

I hope a swede (or maybe a finn? ;3) will be bringing the smoked/dried reindeer meat back. It was soooo gooood!!! :D  (I've got a friend who's moved to Finland, so yeah, I know you guys have the smoked/dried meat, too x''D)
________________________________________________________________

Any special Danish goodies you guys would like to see? :)

I might bring a bag of 'Kims' chips, the most famous Danish brand. xD But then the question is... What flavor do you guys want? There's two-three types of cheese puffs, salt, barbecue, sour cream and onion, dill, salt&pepper - you name it, it's there, mostly. So what flavor of chips would you like to taste? They've even got chips made from rye flour (so that they're a tiny bit healthier), now! :D

Hmm, last year we did bring some pálinka from Hungary and it was quite well received, could do that again too :D — How about some Salmiakki Koskenkorva in exchange?

yaaay ^^

(Btw, how much does a bottle cost? And I have the same question for the deer meat bag too (a few years ago there was a pretty cool one of those, had three different deers' meat in it) — these things are entirely unavailable in my country and would love to bring some home to survive another year without Scandinavia :D)

No, we didn't know; or I didn't at least.

I'm not sure what the organising part needs, but the event seems to be generally self-hosting (with common set-up and clean-up easily achievable, see also last year).  Anything else we'd need to know?

I guess we need to ask from EF staff to reserve some panel room for 3 hours? Maybe same one as last year? Room already have tables and chairs. All we need after that is maybe some paper and pens so people can write their country and names of their foods, and some plastic bags for trash.

After that, this event seem to be very self-hosting as you said. People come in, put their foods and drinks on tables and start chatting and tasting what other have brought :) When people are leaving, they take their excess food with them or otherwise get rid of them.

But of course someone needs to be named who takes care that things run smoothly and room is left clean after everyone have left.

Hey guys,

Unfortunately Doco is right and I will not be attending EF this year around. This has nothing to do with EF but more with another oppertunity that came by that I couldn't pass on. I'll almost definiately be back next year!

What does this mean for the International Snack Exchange?

What this means is that I won't be organising the international snack exchange this year around. The good news however is that because you guys are so awesome you won't need a lot to make this event work. So what I'm going to do is ask around if there are people willing to take the role as 'organiser' so the event can keep going on like it always has the last couple of years. Whether this will be my boyfriend or one of the previous visitors I'm not yet sure about but more will probably come as EF comes closer. It would be a shame if you guys couldn't share your awesome food just because I'm not attending!

As said, I would prefer, and I bet EF staff feels the same, if somebody takes responsibility so staff has a person to talk to regarding the event and so the room is left behind all clean and proper.

Sorry for the inconvience guys but it's awesome to see you are all excited again!
