Sunday November 24th: Super Scandi(navian)
Last year when attending Terra Madre in Italy, I purchased a seat for The Theater of Taste. Magnus Nilsson stood at the head of the room behind a stovetop and demonstrated how to cook scallops over burning juniper branches and served it over a bed of moss….in a standard kitchen; it was glorious! You don’t have to be a Slow Food member to attend. Bring a partner, a friend, or come solo and learn something new about modern Scandinavian foods, Magnus Nilsson style. (I think he’s super.)
This class takes place in my (Jessica Bongard’s) home kitchen located in Jericho, VT. I find Magnus Nilsson’s philosophy and artistry about food awe inspiring. There is not enough time to talk about it. But we can scratch the surface over a few of his dishes. ”If it tastes good, it is right, and if it doesn’t taste good try again.”–Magnus Nilsson
