December 10 is Nobel Day, and I'm right now watching the festivities on TV. The appetizer has just been served, and I have to share the menu with you all:
Lobster with pickled winter vegetables and Jerusalem artichoke purée
Guinea hen with porcini mushrooms and lingonberries,
poached pearl onions with parsley roots and velouté sauce
Mandarin and white chocolate mousse on a cinnamon-spiced cake
with raspberry marmelade and fresh raspberries
For all the menus of years past, look here. You can go to Stadshuskällaren (except it'll be closed for renovation in 2012) and eat any past Nobel menu (as long as you give a few days notice). I never have, but I really want to, sometime!
