Spain's Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez offered the participants at the NATO summit in Madrid a very special experience with a special Ukrainian ingredient on Wednesday evening.
The socialist invited the heads of state and government to a working dinner in the Prado, one of the largest and most important art museums in the world.
In addition to a concert by the Kiev Symphony Orchestra, the guests were treated to a menu by Spanish celebrity chef José Andrés.
He is the founder of the organization World Central Kitchen (WCK), which, according to its own information, provides victims of natural disasters worldwide with healthy food.
After the Russian invasion of Ukraine, his organization has given out thousands of portions of hot food to Ukrainian refugees on the Polish border.
The menu at the Prado, however, was far more exquisite. The starter was to be lobster gazpacho with summer vegetables.
The main course was to be lamb shoulder with lemon puree.
For dessert, under the name 'Flavours of Madrid,' there was to be aniseed liqueur with strawberries from Aranjuez as well as waffles and violet caramel.
In between, codfish with orange and beetroot was to be served.
On the last day of the summit on Thursday, the focus was to be on the fight against terrorism.
