Swedish Comfort Foods

Course Overview

It should come as no surprise that Swedes are experts at comfort foods: after all, there seems to be a direct connection between shortening days and dropping temperatures and the body’s desire for warm, creamy, dairy-laden foods. Join Chef Scott Graden for a delicious and filling weekend cooking up many traditional favorites, including salmon smørbrød, potato sausage, jansson’s temptation, Hasselback potatoes, split pea & smoked ham soup, fennel sesame crackers, gjetost crème brûlée, and of course, Swedish meatballs with lingonberries. The course will begin with an evening social hour and film screening of Babette’s Feast to set the tone for the weekend. Then, students will be busy in the kitchen on days 2 and 3. On day 3, the class will culminate with a shared meal at around 4pm. Students may bring a guest to the meal.
