Enjoy Danish Smorrebrod dinner at Nordic Northwest
All are invited to attend a night of education and food prepared by visiting Danish culinary and hospitality students from Denmark's College 360 May 25 starting at 7 p.m. at Nordic Northwest, 8800 SW Oleson Road in Portland. The students will prepare a selection of smorrebrod (open faced sandwiches) with the help of students from Bend's Cascade Culinary Institute. The sandwiches will be made using local Oregon ingredients.
The sandwiches will be paired with wines from Oregon's Patton Valley Vineyards and Ridgecrest Vineyards, whose wines are exported to Denmark, plus cocktails created by Broder staff using Krogstad aquavit.
A presentation about the tradition of smorrebrod in Denmark will be part of the entertainment.
Tickets are $50 for Nordic Northwest members and $65 for non-members.
