Learn to bake Norwegian holiday cookies


If you’ve ever seen those impressively pretty plates of Scandanavian cookies and wanted to learn to make your own, now’s your chance.Oslo Lodge, Sons of Norway in Bremerton will host three, free cookie baking workshops.I heard about it somewhat late (in today’s paper), so the first one, in which the group baked Spritz cookies beginning at 9 a.m. today will probably be tough to make in time (about 15 minutes as of this posting).

The next two, however, are coming Sept. 26 and Oct. 3, also starting at 9.

On Sept. 26, they’ll bake Sanbakkel (pictured), which is A tender almond cookie baked in tiny tins.

On Oct. 3, it’s Krumkake, airy cookies baked on a special hot iron with decorative etching and rolled into a cone.

Registration is required. Call 360-373-1503 or 360-377-7356.

The classes are at the lodge on Warren Avenue, at the north end of Olympic College’s parking lot near the bridge.

Cooking Classes in Bremerton

It’s been a really busy (and unfortunately not for cooking) kind of week, and I apologize.

I want to drop a quick note, however, about a recently started series of cooking classes geared toward home cooks. Classes are offered at the Westgate Community Hall in Bremerton, next to Crownhill Elementary School on Rocky Point Road.

Many of the classes are set for Mondays, but a some upcoming classes are Friday Jan. 16 and Saturday the 17th. Topics range from appetizers to desserts.

Cost is $25 to $35 for a 2 hour session. I hope to try out a couple of classes, such as one next Friday on “elegant plated desserts” and maybe one on breads or petit fours.
