Lefse  is a traditional soft Norwegian flatbread, usually made with potatoes, flour, butter, and milk or cream. It is cooked on a large, flat griddle, using special tools including long wooden turning sticks and special rolling pins with deep grooves.  Participants will learn techniques of mixing, rolling and grilling these tender, delicious breads, so important to Norwegian-American cuisine, and should be able to go home with at least half a dozen hand-made lefse.

Materials fee: (To be collected directly from students by instructor in class):  $5.00
