Skyr

Nordic Table Workshop: Making Skyr at Home with Anna Sharratt

Friday, April 17, 2020 - 6:00pm

This workshop takes place on Friday, April 17, from 6-8:30 p.m. & Saturday, April 18, 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!

Students are encouraged to bring a bath towel and a large, heavy pot or Dutch oven.

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