Nordic Table  - Tasting and Talk, Savory Sweet

Beth Dooley and Mette Nielsen, co-authors of the book Savory Sweet: Simple Preserves from a Northern Kitchen, will share insight, stories, tips and hints on preserving fresh flavors in our local bounty the Nordic way.

Just as in the Scandinavian countries, Minnesota and Midwestern seasons are challenging and short. The authors' simple approach to food combines the bright, bold flavors of Nordic cuisines with an emphasis on the local and practical. Along with a sampling of quick, brilliant condiments from the book, they will share ideas for enjoying food and preserves throughout the year in ways to spark everyday meals and for casual, elegant entertaining.

She writes for the Minneapolis–St. Paul Star Tribune and appears regularly on KARE 11 TV and Minnesota Public Radio’s “Appetites.”
