In cooperation with Novelty Food and the praline Grieg Suites, we are delighted to invite you to a small breather with some food for the soul during this year’s ANUGA.
We believe fine food deserves fine music.
Grieg Suites is a tribute to the greatest Norwegian composer, Edvard Grieg (1843-1907). He named some of his masterpieces “suites”. Grieg both studied and worked a long time in Europe, but was always inspired by Norwegian folk music and Norwegian Nature.
As a tribute to his spirit, the Grieg Suites are composed of dark superior chocolate, filled with Lübecker marzipan flavoured with apple juice from the fjords of Hardanger on a layer of Wiener Nougat.
