Norvegan Christmas Cooking Class
featuring the wines of Querciabella
Looking for inspiration to bring some new and familiar flavors to your holiday table this year?
This might just be the class for you!
During this fun-filled (and last of the year) holiday cooking class, I will show you how to make four classic Norwegian dishes I grew up with for Christmas and how to pair them with some fabulous Italian wines. You may think of only beer and aquavit when hearing the word “Scandinavian Christmas” but believe me, Italian wines pair beautifully with Nordic flavors!
Let me help bring some cheer and deliciousness to your home to celebrate this very special time of year… we all deserve some enjoyment after this year don’t you think?
