Nordic Table Workshop: Kräftskiva! with Patrice Johnson

Wednesday, August 14, 2019 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

August 7 marks the start of a special season in Sweden: the kräftpremiär, or start of the crayfish hunting. This season brings with it festive outdoor dinner parties complete with singing, colorful decorations and plenty of food and drink.

ASI is holding our annual Kräftskiva on August 23, but if you want to learn how to pull off your own party at home, look to Patrice Johnson for guidance. During this workshop, she’ll share tips for preparing (and eating!) your crayfish, along with a slate of traditional and modern accompaniments. So that we can properly toast our host and fellow guests, everyone will be given an aquavit shot (included in the price of the class). This class is demonstration-based with some opportunities for participation, and will be held on the Turnblad Mansion’s veranda, weather permitting.

For more at-home kräftskiva tips, try Craft & Cocktails: Crayfish Party Decorations on August 7.
