Scandinavian Saturday: Danish Kringle
December 14, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Kringle is “Wisconsin’s Official Pastry” and Racine Wisconsin is the city that made it famous. Kringle is also a type of Danish pastry. We will not attempt the 81 layers of the Racine kringle. But we will learn a basic Danish pastry and some of the many ways to roll and shape them. Each attendee willmake a batch of dough to take home and finish as they choose. We will then taste a few varieties 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.
