Lefse with Heidi


Heidi Eger learned to make lefse with her grandmother and mother. In her class, she shares her great-grandmother's time-tested recipe and a lot of good information on how to make lefse that you'll be proud to share with your friends and family. Heidi believes that lefse is good regardless of shape. While she will show you techniques for rolling and frying a classic round lefse, she reminds students that even lefse in the shape of the state of Texas tastes good. $40

Evergreen Foraging with Maria Wesserle


Just because it’s the dead of winter doesn’t mean you have to stop foraging! Evergreens are easy to spot amongst the otherwise grey landscape, and they have a long history of treating coughs and colds, and supplying much-needed vitamins A and C during the winter. They have been used by Nordic cooks to brighten flavors and have caught the attention of New Nordic Cuisine chefs for new, experimental foods.
This class will focus on traditional uses as you make pine-infused vinegar, pine switchel, hot tea, juniper salt and a bit of juniper butter to spread on tasty slices of rye bread. Join Maria Wesserle, founder of Four Season Foraging to learn which evergreens to harvest and which to avoid. Together, you will go over identification of different evergreen species, and foraging etiquette. $40
This class meets at Norway House, 913 E. Franklin Avenue, Minneapolis.

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 Brenda Lewis. Brenda learned from long-time Ingebretsen's instructor, Lorraine Jasinski and she won a blue ribbon at the Minnesota State Fair with her kransekake! Brenda will walk you through the steps of making a kransekake in this hands-on class and give you the confidence to bake one on your own. One two-hour class - $45
This class is held in the Hanson Room at Norway House, 913 E. Franklin Ave. Minneapolis.
