Homemade Scandinavian Gifts from the Kitchen

The North House teaching kitchen becomes Santa Scott’s workshop for two days, as students handcraft an impressive array of Scandinavian holiday treats, suitable for any festive occasion and gift-giving need. Under the careful eye of Chef Scott Graden of the New Scenic Café, students will produce a bevy of treats to take home (some “quality control” snacking allowed!). Students will leave with more than a dozen of each item, and will learn new skills and revisit old favorites from the kitchens of Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland. Learn to make rosettes, krumkake, lefse, pickled beets, rusks, hard tack, speculos, glogg mix, saffron buns, and kringle. Several of these items store well, and can be given throughout the winter. Santa’s elves have got nothing on you after this course: you’ll be well stocked and ready to celebrate!
