You know what they say: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach a man to filet a salmon or pickle a herring and you’ve opened up a lifetime of Nordic cooking. Learn to make these and other Scandinavian favorites at the NORTH Festival Cooking Classes. Whether you are a beginner looking to learn the basics or an accomplished home cook interested in traditional Nordic techniques, there is a class for you.

Chef Carl Kristian Frederiksen from Aamanns Copenhagen will teach you how to craft the perfect open-faced sandwiches that are a classic Danish lunch at his Pickling and Smørrebrød Class. From Finnish-born Simo Kuusisto you can learn to make the hearty, dense rye bread that has been a dietary staple in Scandinavia for centuries. For adventurous eaters, Ulrika Bengtsson will teach a class on cooking game meat and for those looking to do something a little different with their holidays this year, she is also offering a class on how to cook for a classic Nordic Christmas. Attendees with a sweet tooth will want to consider the Nordic Chocolate & Pastry Class with Pastry Chef Vesa Parviainen from Mast Brothers.

Those classes and many more will be available the first weekend in October at the International Culinary Center. Each three-hour class will allow participants to gets hands-on experience in the kitchen and, of course, create some delicious food.
