Scandinavian Saturday: Norwegian Lefse
November 9, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Especially before the holidays, people like to make a batch of this traditional potato-based flatbread: a great family activity and way to pass this tradition on to the next generation. Bring lefse making equipment if you have it, and a heavy bath towel to keep your lefse warm. Attendees will each take home about six lefse. Tasting with house-made butter (and sugarif you like) and coffee or tea included!
Terry Kelzer, local culinary and cultural expert, brings more than 50 years of cooking and baking experience, as well as a delightful sense of humor, to all her classes. After 12 years working in restaurants and bakeries in the Twin Cities, she and her husband and young family moved to a small farm near Amery where they raised dairy goats, chickens, fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Terry says that is when her education in the basics of real food began, along with a deep appreciation for her ancestors as she had to learn to prepare, process, and preserve everything produced on the farm on an old wood cookstove. During this time, she also cooked and baked ‘from scratch’ for Head Start for 26 years. Terry’s great joy is sharing with others all the things she has learned along the way. Join us and experience both her knowledge and her joy.
