Kransekake with Brenda Lewis

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 (using a Kransekake Ring Set). One two-hour class - $45 
This class is held in the Hanson Room at Norway House, 913 E. Franklin Ave. Minneapolis.

Foraging within the City Limits – A springtime foraging event
with Sam Thayer and Maria Wesserle

City Foraging Event

Book signing with Sam Thayer to follow!

The practice of foraging plants for edible and medicinal purposes is often associated with rural and wilderness areas, but did you know that many delicious wild edibles can be found in cities? Join Ingebretsen's, local forager Maria Wesserle, and celebrated author Sam Thayer as we walk around the neighborhood and explore what wild edibles and medicinals spring has to offer. Plants we will probably encounter include garlic mustard, burdock, cattail, nettle, dandelion, and many others! We will discuss identification, harvesting, and cooking techniques. You'll head home with a newfound appreciation for the urban environment! $55

This class will start and end at Ingebretsen’s classroom, 1605 E. Lake Street. The rest of the time we will be walking, so please wear comfortable shoes, bring a water bottle and a notepad and pen. You’ll be sure to take a lot of notes!

After the event, Sam will sign and sell his books.

Saturday, June 8      12:30 to 4:30
