A Swedish Evening with author Anna Brones at Border Nord: Krappkakor, Kanelbullar, Aquavit, Nordic Coffee and more!
We all know that tea is a big deal in Britain, but did you know that coffee gets a similar honored status in Sweden?
Come join Anna Brones, co-author of Fika: The Art of the Swedish Coffee Break to learn more about this time honored Swedish tradition that has come to be loved around the world, and to also learn how to bake one of the most iconic fika dishes: kanelbullar, the Swedish cinnamon roll.
To pair with the kanelbullar, the coffee experts from Sprudge will sample a variety of Nordic coffee blends Broder Nord will prepare a light Scandinavian-inspired dinner including Swedish dumplings called Krappkakor, a potato dumpling with salt pork and lingonberry jam and their house-made gravlax on rye bread. Jacob Grier, Portland-based author of Cocktails on Tap: The Art of Mixing Spirits and Beer and the founder of Aquavit Week, will serve a Dill Collins cocktail featuring Gamle Ode Dill Aquavit.
