(below are some of the typical classes we offer).

Krumkake with Heidi Eger

Come learn how to make the Scandinavian classic cookie, krumkake! Class instructor Heidi first made krumkake on her Great-Uncle's stove. Since then, she's tested different recipes and learned to use her iron for more than just classic krumkake. In this class, participants will mix up a batch of classic, gingerbread flavored krumkake and a batch of nontraditional, spiced chocolate krumkake. We'll talk about recipe variations, different rolling techniques, and how to also use your krumkake baker to make Dutch Stroopwafels, waffle cones, sweet and savory Pizzelles, and Rommebrod. $35/$30 for Norway House members

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 among 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 how to use them. $40

Teacher’s bio: Maria has been foraging about 16 years and loves sharing this skill with others. She has been teaching for 10 years at various organizations in the Upper Midwest including the Traditional Ways Gathering, Ashland, Wisconsin; Martha Wagbo Farm and Education Center, East Jordan, Michigan; North Country Food Alliance in Minneapolis, Minnesota; and the Young Friends of the Jordan youth program in East Jordan, Michigan.
Last year she founded Four Season Foraging, and now offers monthly foraging workshops throughout the Twin Cities.

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. One two-hour class. $45
