Savory Sweet Demo Lesson and Gift Ideas with Mette Nielsen

Savory-Sweet-Class-with-Mette-Nielsen Savory-Sweet-Class-with-Mette-Nielsen-2

Mette Nielsen is a food photographer and co-author, along with Beth Dooley, of
Savory Sweet – Simple Preserves from a Northern Kitchen.
Their book shows you how to preserve seasonal foods quickly, simply, and without special equipment. In this demonstration lesson, Mette will share what she calls “The New Northern Approach.” She reminds us that the need to can huge quantities of food in hot water baths is long gone. Instead, we can make small batches with no artificial ingredients, with minimal sugar and with bright, interesting flavors. Best of all, with the holidays fast approaching, you can easily make unique gifts that will be used and enjoyed. Mette will share some of her favorite ideas for gifts and give guidelines on how to create your own savory sweet combinations. Food samples included. $5
Join us in the Hansen Room at Norway House, 913 E. Franklin Avenue. Book signing from 12:30 to 3. 
Sunday, October 1   11-12:30


A kransekake is the commanding centerpiece dessert at Norwegian weddings, graduations, baptisms, and other major life events.
Made with ground almonds and consisting of tiers of wreath-shaped layers,
the cake has a rich taste and texture that is uniquely its own.

Learn to make this impressive cake with Lorraine Jasinski, who has been baking them for decades. Some of Lorraine's students from this class have gone on to win prizes with their kransekakes, including a blue ribbon at the Minnesota State Fair. Lorraine is also featured in an instructional DVD, so her tips and encouraging advice are always available when you need it.
