A hands-on baking class. Class is limited to 12 students. Alongside the tasting of baked goods, a seasonal salad will be served with wine and beer. 

Your curiosity for all things baked from Scandinavia continues. Jennifer, our resident baking instructor, compiled a survey of Scandinavian baked goods. In this hopscotch-like tour of Scandi pastry classics, you will work in teams to produce a variety of treats, from sweet to savory!


Finnish/Icelandic Quick Dark Rye Bread — A dense quick bread, delicious with sliced meats, cheese, smoked fish, or with cultured butter. We'll slice these loaves and make open-faced sandwiches to end the night!

Icelandic Astarpungar — Also known as "Love Balls," these are deep-fried doughnut-like bites with raisins.

Norwegian Kransekake — A traditional almond "Ring Cake" made for special events. 

Swedish Kladdkaka — Sticky chocolate cake that hits all the right buttons: easy, gooey, very chocolatey.

This menu contains the following common allergens: dairy, wheat, eggs, and nuts. Let us know if you're allergic to anything by sending us a note at before purchasing a ticket.
