Nordic Table Workshop: Making Skyr at Home

Friday, February 22, 2019 - 6:00pm to Saturday, February 23, 2019 - 3:30pm

This class meets on Friday, Feb. 22, from 6-8:30 p.m. & on Saturday, Feb. 23, from 1-3:30 p.m.

Skyr is one of the great national treasures of Iceland, a thick and tangy yogurt known for its important part in a healthy Icelandic diet (as well as its beautifully creamy texture). Traditionally made from skim milk, it’s high in protein and low in fat – but doesn’t taste like it!

In all Nordic countries, a harsh northern climate with limited agriculture has made dairy and food preservation techniques like souring milk essential resources for survival, and Icelanders have traditionally made skyr at home. Anna Sharratt will share this everyday art, exploring Iceland’s unique culture through the lens of skyr in traditional and contemporary life, from turf farms to ancient sagas to modern poetry. You’ll go home with a jar full of skyr and new recipes to use it in!

This class welcomes students 10 and up if registered alongside an accompanying adult.

An additional $10 materials fee is payable to the instructor for a reusable jar and muslin towel.
