author of Jul: Swedish American Holiday Traditions


JUL-Swedish-American-Holida 

"You definitely want to learn about the Lucia buns"...
– Beatrice Ojakangas, author of The Great Scandinavian Baking Book, said in her review of Jul...

“This book makes me want to go into the kitchen and plan a holiday party!
Patrice updates the flavors and shapes of traditional Christmas classics like Swedish meatballs and Lucia buns, creating a fresh new approach to these old-world treats.”

Patrice Johnson has been cooking, blogging, and teaching Swedish traditional foods, New Nordic cuisine, and Nordic fusion food for years. She's been an entertaining teacher and presenter at Ingebretsen's. Now, Patrice can add “cookbook author” to her long list of accomplishments. Her book, Jul: Swedish American Holiday Traditions, is newly released and we are very pleased to present Patrice to talk about her book and sign copies. 
Patrice will talk about her work and demonstrate rolling and making Lucia buns from 10 to 11:30.

And she'll be signing her book from 11:30 to 1.

Legends in Wool Trunk Show

Laurie-Jacobi-2  Lauri-Jacobi-Trunk-Show

Rumpelstiltskin spun straw into gold, but Laurie Jacobi and Mary Jane Miller take myths and dreams and sew them into stunning coats that keep you warm while turning heads. (Their dispositions are much nicer than Mr. R’s, too.)
They are at Ingebretsen’s for a trunk show of their newest designs.
Laurie began as a graphic designer, then made a career change. Time spent in the North Woods inspired her and she started to design blankets, woven for her by Pendleton Woolen Mills. The designs reflected the natural world and the world of myth that surrounded her. Laurie celebrated the northern climate with coats, jackets, hats, and mittens that used the runes, imagery, and animals of the far north.
Together with Mary Jane Miller, Laurie has created a full line of winter clothing. They have been featured in galleries in the United State, Sweden, and Finland. Laurie was also a Cultural Envoy to Kazakhstan, a country that is developing its textile and fashion industry.
As striking as the images of these coats are, please come and feel their warmth and see the beauty of the craftsmanship up close. Each design is rich in meaning; Laurie and Mary Jane look forward to telling you about each one.
All day.

Anne Gillespie Lewis Book Signing

A-Perfect-Tree-for-Christmas-Anne-Gillespie-Lewis

Anne Gillespie Lewis will be at Ingebretsen’s twice this holiday season!

Anne’s first signing is Friday, November 24 when she will sign A Perfect Tree for Christmas.
Her children’s book has lively illustrations and two Christmas trees that find that not being perfect doesn’t mean you can’t be just perfect for someone special.
Anne will also be signing her latest book, Marie-Andree at Ten / Letters from her Island, a nostalgic look back at life on an island off the west coast of France half a century ago. It is told through the eyes of ten-year-old Marie-Andrée Taraud Sadrant, the middle sister of the seven Taraud daughters. She tells about her life on the island through letters in the course of one year (1965-66) to her pen pal, Anne, who lives in Minnesota.
Then, on Saturday, November 25, Anne will be back with her booklet, Merry Nordic Christmas – A Guide to Celebrating a Scandinavian-style Christmas. If you didn’t have the opportunity to ask older family members how or why something was done, or if your family just wants to bring a bit more Nordic into your celebrations, Anne’s guide will be sure to help. The booklet covers foods, symbols and customs associated with Nordic Christmases, the music, and of course, recipes.

I Remember Mama - at the Riverview Theater
Ingebretsen's presents a very special screening of I Remember Mama,
the heartwarming story of a Norwegian immigrant family's life in 1910 San Francisco.

I-Remember-Mama

Norwegian immigrant Marta Hanson (Irene Dunne) keeps a firm but loving hand on her household of four children, a devoted husband (Philip Dorn) and a highly-educated lodger (Cedric Hardwicke) who reads Charles Dickens to the family every evening. Through financial crises, illnesses and the small triumphs of everyday life, Marta maintains her optimism and sense of humor, traits she passes on to her aspiring-author daughter, Katrin (Barbara Bel Geddes).
What a wonderful way to start off the season... by adding a beloved film classic to your holiday traditions!
Doors open at 6:30 for pre-screening entertainment, film at 7pm.
Tickets are 3$ and available at Ingebretsen's on East Lake St, or at the door.
At Riverview Theater,  3800 42nd Street, Minneapolis.

Enjoy the classic I Remember Mama trailer...
