To celebrate the 68th edition of the “Eurovision Song Contest” (ESC), Food Explorers is getting together for a “Eurovision Cook-and-Dine” session!

This international song contest was founded after World War Two, and it is an institution that drew over 162 million viewers in 2023.  The “Euro-” prefix is a bit misleading – contestants can come from any member country of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) which includes numerous non-European nations such as Israel, Morocco, Azerbaijan and even Australia.

Typically, the winner of the preceding year would host the contest.  Sweden won ESC 2023 with the song “Tattoo” by Loreen, so this year’s contest will be held in Malmö, Sweden.

So, get your tastebuds ready for a journey across the smörgåsbord of cuisines from ESC-participating countries as we prepare a few iconic dishes for dinner.

When:  Saturday, May 11th, starting at 18.00 till about 23.00 thereabouts

Where:  Maria Luz and Joachim’s home in Weinheim (address will be provided to those attending)

What:  We will be making 4-5 dishes from the countries with the highest odds of winning ESC 2024 (according to bookmakers’ predictions).  Leading the pack at the moment are entries from Switzerland, Croatia, Netherlands, Italy and Ukraine.  Note that the odds can still change, so we will finalize the menu two weeks before the show.

There is space for 8 participants.  Contact me from April 11th onwards to register, and let me know if you have any special dietary requests so that we may adjust the menu accordingly.  The list of participants will be finalised April 27th.

Come join us and celebrate culinary diversity!
