The Insider's Guide to Making Lefse with Martha and David Dobratz
Thanks for all the Lefse! )


Martha and David Dobratz have taught lefse at Ingebretsen's for 14 years. James Beard award-winning cookbook author Raghavan Iyer (who will be signing books at Ingebretsen's on November 4) took their class in preparation for writing his latest cookbook and corporate team-building parties requested the Dobratzes as teachers. These folks know their lefse. 
Before they retire from teaching, they are sharing their best tips and tricks for making lefse and how to make passing on a tradition, fun. Join us for this free presentation of hard-won wisdom. If you've taken a class from the Dobratz's, please be sure to stop by and update them on your lefse-making progress! 10:30 - 11:30
