I made it, I ate it!

General description

Breakfast, brunch, lunch, supper, dinner, snack...

Sounds like your everyday life??! Yes, just like mine!

I know you put everything edible in your mouth and feel great pleasure afterwards when you are full!

But, have you ever thought Where does this food come from? or How it is made? or How many people have worked on that??!

No? Well, neither have I :P!

During 2 weeks in this summer you will have an opportunity to learn new facts about food engineering and product development.

You will visit labs, different companies and turn back in time when people used to live in the farms and had to make all the food and beverages themselves!

And if you havent been to Estonia and partied with the Estonians yet, then it's your loss...

Fortunately, you are 1 click away from the most unforgettable 2weeks of your summer 2010.
