Course Overview

Come celebrate Swedish Midsommar by Lake Superior! Over two days, students will collaborate to prepare a feast inspired by Swedish home favorites, including gravlax, herring salad, cheese pie, shrimp toast, rye crackers, bread, refrigerator pickles, potato salad, and strawberry cake. We’ll build beautiful serving platters and then feast together near the harbor in Grand Marais. Participants will go home with recipes and skills to create your own Midsommar feast.

Midsommar is an important holiday in Sweden. A celebration of the longest days of the year, Midsommar kicks off the brief Swedish summer. Many city-dwellers travel to the countryside to celebrate. It’s a time to enjoy fresh, simple foods and the outdoors.
