dm FOOD FESTIVAL - Impressions*

Hi guys,

it has been just incredible to spend time with many interesting young people @ the dm international Food Festival, which took place last weekend in Salzburg. 

The location itself has been the beautiful modern Panzerhalle, which is and has been used in the past for many other interesting fairs and events and has been just perfect to create a pre-festive Christmas atmosphere while cooking delicious meals from 12 different countries all around Europe (countries where dm drugstores are located:)).

I've tried, I really did.... but the icing has been already a bit dry to apply...

besides the delicious dm bio green ice tea with tangerine and lemon grass I've enjoyed to see all the brand-new goods from herbaria:)!

The dm team has create an unforgettable work, me including the most of other lifestyle-/food bloggers and influencers won't forget this festival as it has been the kind of events you don't see often or even experience twice in your life (if you know what I mean?! - it's got its own individual uniqueness, which you won't see in that way on any other food festival!).

I got really lucky to be invited to this amazing place, where I baked fresh Czech gingerbread as well as I tried out the very first time Romanian Polenta, Austrian beet risotto and Slowenian Chocolate Pasta filled with dark chocolate (sounds not just sweet it has been damn good and sweet!).

päx food created high-end finest dried fruits (I totally love their dry pineapple pieces!:))

The workshops has been held in German and English on 12 cooking islands with 4-5 applicants on each cooking island. It really surprised me that I've been chosen for the Czech cook island as it has been a surprised until all of us got the gorgeous festive dm basket, which we filled with all the goods. I got the number 11 on the back of the heart shaped mark of my basket, and cooking island no. 11 has represented Czech Republic.

I love pickles, therefore I've been pretty excited to see the LUTZ snacking pickles....a shame I just picked one jar (as they are damn good!!!!)

After we finished cooking, we spend a long time on the "Christmas Market", where we filled up our festive baskets with different brand-new dm bio products and other branded goods.

The day flew by quite quickly and suddenly we took our way back home.

It has been a great new experience in the kitchen for a non-cook like me as well as a VERY fun and unforgettable trip to Salzburg and to spend the whole weekend with dm - I'm really thankful and therefore, I wanted to share with you most of it in this post, to show you how amazing it has been as well as to thank dm for inviting me!:)
