Scandinavian Cooking Class in Olympia, WA, July 14

Grilled Salmon and Cucumber Salad

The sun is shining more often than not around here right now, and the gentle warmth and the lushness of this season have me dreaming of Scandinavia. This time of year is when I start to think of the similarities between the food of Scandinavia and what’s available here in the Pacific Northwest: salmon from local waters, berries picked at the peak of perfection, mushrooms and herbs–the list goes on. With that in mind, I’m excited to announce that I’m teaching a cooking class at the Bayview School of Cooking in Olympia, Washington, on Tuesday, July 14. The theme is Dinner in the Land of the Midnight Sun, and I’m going to be demonstrating how to make an assortment of classic Scandinavian and Nordic-inspired dishes, including salmon with lemon-horseradish cream, cucumber salad, potatoes with dill, and Norwegian bløtkake, a layer cake loaded with cream and strawberries. To see the full menu and to register, visit the Bayview School of Cooking’s website. I hope to see some of you in class!

Coming Up: Cooking Class in Seattle

One of the things I love best about food is how it brings people together. That’s certainly the case for family meals and socials with friends, and also with the news I’m excited to share with you today. In just a couple of weeks I’ll be leading my first cooking class at the Nordic Heritage Museum in Seattle. The Museum has scheduled a fun lineup of pancake classes–one for each of the Nordic countries–this winter and spring and they’ve asked me to teach the Norwegian one that kicks off the series this month.

If you’re in Seattle and have an interest in cooking alongside other people with a passion for Nordic food (particularly pancakes!), I hope you’ll consider coming out for the class on Saturday, January 25, from 10am to 12:30pm. We’ll gather in the kitchen for some hands-on time making pannekaker and a hearty Norwegian soup then sit down to brunch.

The class is just $30 ($25 for museum members), and there’s a discount if you sign up for the five-class series. Find out how to register–and see the whole lineup–on the museum’s website. I hope to see some of you there!
