ONLINE: A Modern Syttende Mai: An Intimate Cook-Along Class with Nevada Berg of North Wild Kitchen

April 24 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Nordic inspired hotdogs, salad, and bløtkake by Nevada Berg

Join celebrated food writer and author Nevada Berg from North Wild Kitchen in making a traditional 17 May meal with a few modern twists.

Whether in Norway or abroad, Norway’s Constitution Day is a celebration full of lively parades and gatherings with elaborate tables of delicious spreads and outdoor grills on the ready. In this class, you’ll make the toppings from Nevada’s cookbook for two of her Nordic-inspired hot dogs—The Summer Dog and The Viking. She’ll show you how to prepare homemade strawberry ketchup and two variations of aioli. For the side, you’ll prepare a spring potato salad bursting with radishes and cucumbers.

To round off the meal, you’ll make traditional potato tarts with fresh berries and whipped cream. The potato tart has been referred to as a cheap and simple alternative to the classic bløtkake, especially when war rations meant that sugar was limited or impossible to get. Despite being an alternative, these tarts are buttery, flaky, and absolutely delicious!

Join Nevada for this intimate cooking class, where you’ll have a chance to engage and learn more about Norwegian food while recreating a little piece of Norway in your home. Space is limited, so book your spot soon!

Included in the cost of this class, you will receive a signed copy of Nevada’s cookbook North Wild Kitchen: Cooking from the Heart of Norway

This class is also offered on Sunday, April 25th.
