Sep 16: Egg and Bacon sandwich; Vegetarian Tasting Menu

Lunch

Time to say goodbye for Amsterdam for this year, and travel on to Geneva to present on metadata to filmmakers there.

At Shiphol Airport we each had an egg and bacon sandwich on wholemeal bread, which was surprisingly good.

As you’d expect at an airport, they were not cheap at $6.30 each.

Dinner

After the presentation was over and most folk had left, we were treated to an excellent vegetarian dinner in Cafe du Grutli adjacent to the presentation theater in the same building in Geneva.

The proprietor suggested she provide a selection of appetizers followed by a sample plate of their entrees.

At the left, zucchini wrapped deliciousness. At the right, highly picked aubergine and zucchini with goat cheese.

The entree plate sampled an array of really great flavors, but without a menu we can’t remember the details. Each of the samples was excellent from the curry and chick peas, to the spinach, mushroom barley, and sweet potato with a fig in the center.

Dinner tonight was sponsored by Luma Forge, makers of the popular ShareStation shared storage solutions.
