We'll make Swedish köttbulle, Danish kødboller, and vegan meatballs as we dive into one of Scandinavia's most iconic dishes. This Vesterheim cooking class is designed as a small-group cook-along and we invite exchange between the instructor and students in order to build community around food traditions. In this same spirit of sharing, we invite the whole family to experience this collaborative cooking and learning process. Only one registration is needed per household.
