The Nobel Price

Yesterday it was time for the annual Nobel Price award to be handed out, which means that it was also time for the Nobel Price Banquet.

Since it is an event shown on television we are all allowed in to the salons of Nobel Price award winners, scientists, politicians, company leaders and of course, royalties.

December 10 is an extremely important date for many people. Just think about all the planning, the logistics, the security and the food. The food… It is not “just food” that is being served at this banquet, it is blood, sweat and tears, months and months of preparations and tastings and disasters. It is a piece of art served on the most exquisite China designed by Swedish artist Karin Björquist.
