It is the 31st of December and everyone is preparing a dish for the diner. The idea is simple, the table has to be full of delicious dishes for tonight's buffet. Starting sunset people were cooking. I remind that in this remote/northern location sunset starts relatively early which was good regarding the amount of work needed.
To get a better picture you should watch or re-watch Babettes Gæstebud, because the quality we reached in the food presented and the light condition to prepare and enjoy the diner were matching those depicted in the movie. Of course no turtle sup (problem is in Norway the turtle is still very expensive and hard to find) but rakfisk, gougère, Lithuanian cheese, filet mignon and many more. And of course
A very good transition to 2014 indeed.
