Learn to bake an easy Danish rugbrød and make three different Danish smørbrød with chef instructor Kristi Bissell, founder of the Nordic food blog, True North Kitchen

In the first part of this class, students will make rugbrød, a dense, seedy rye bread that is an integral part of the Scandinavian diet, not just in Denmark but throughout the region. Most notably, this sturdy rye bread serves as the base for the delicious open sandwiches (smørbrød) found throughout the northern countries. Kristi will walk us through the process of preparing rugbrød at home.

In the second part of this class, using your freshly-baked bread as a base, Kristi will demonstrate three tasty smørbrød: Roast Beef with Danish Remouladeand, New Potato and Garlic Aioli, and Smoked Salmon with Fennel Salad

This class includes a kit with a 13 X 4 inch pullman pan, all the dry ingredients, and a special treat (a $50 value). Kits will be shipped to students and will have everything needed to get started making a loaf of rugbrød.

If you are registering for this class in a location outside the contiguous United States, additional shipping charges may apply. Please contact jtorkelson@vesterheim.org when you register for more information.
