In October the annual Helsinki Book Fair took place in the Helsinki Exhibition and Convention Centre. For four days the largest hall of the centre was filled with various book-related stalls. About 77 000 people visited the fair. That was a new record! In addition to the book fair there was also a music fair and a food and wine fair. Being a librarian I spent a good amount of time at the book fair (if you want to read more about the book fair & see two pictures I took there, go over to my book blog), but, of course, I also wanted to visit the food and wine fair. And I was not dissapointed! I found some new specialist stores I want to visit later and ended up buying three bars of fine Belgian chocolate and a nice tin of macha. I have wanted to try baking with macha for some time now (I just love the colour! :)) and now I finally found some. I would love to hear of any great macha recipes, if any of you know any?
Otherwise my life this autumn has really been about work and dancing. Autumn somehow always is the busiest time at work, and I and Mr. Dance Partner also had the Finnish 10-Dance Championships to prepare for. The championships were held here in Helsinki on October 31st, and I am very happy to tell you that we won the senior class for the third year in a row! :) Below is a picture of us after the competition.
And I hope to be back with a recipe next week.
