Scandinavian Saturday: Cinnamon Buns
October 5, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
October 4th is National Kanelbullar Dag in Sweden (national cinnamon bun day) in celebration of “home baking.” The cinnamon bun was selected because it is a universal favorite. We will make three different kinds:Swedish cinnamon buns, Norwegian cardamom knots, and Danish almond cinnamon buns. Not as sweet as American cinnamon buns, and without the sweet white frosting, they are equally good with many subtle flavors. Tastings follow with house-made butter and coffee or tea.
Terry Kelzer, local culinary and cultural expert, brings more than 50 years of cooking and baking experience, as well as a delightful sense of humor, to all her classes. After 12 years working in restaurants and bakeries in the Twin Cities, she and her husband and young family moved to a small farm near Amery where they raised dairy goats, chickens, fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Terry says that is when her education in the basics of real food began, along with a deep appreciation for her ancestors as she had to learn to prepare, process, and preserve everything produced on the farm on an old wood cookstove. During this time, she also cooked and baked ‘from scratch’ for Head Start for 26 years. Terry’s great joy is sharing with others all the things she has learned along the way. Join us and experience both her knowledge and her joy.
