Stavanger Gladmat Festivalen 2011

The Gladmat Festival is held anually in Stavanger during summer. It is the biggest food festival in Norway and in the Nordic countries.

We went to Stavanger last Thursday (21/07) and watched the spectators, checked the booths and tasted the mouth watering foods.

 

I found Hellstrøm! FYI he is one of the famous chefs here in Norway.

Last year Gordon Ramsey was here.

 
Fashonistas in the town.


At first, I was a bit hesitant to go in that crowd.

 
This is the scene every year. Lots and lots of people!


Some people are so slow especially the ones with strollers. Geesh! Sorry to say this but I got irritated yesterday by the people who were stopping in the middle of the road with their strollers. I don’t mind if they have their kids with them, but please show some consideration for other people too.

 

Long  ATM queue.

 
We had to withdraw money since the food booths only accept cash.


Discussing what to eat.

More boats=lots of tourists

The weather was great and there are lots of foods to choose from. Unfortunately, the last day of the event got cancelled because of the bombing incident in Oslo and shooting incident at Utøya.
