Nordic New Year's Brunch 4.0
posted November 26, 2016 8:14 AM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Sun January 1 at 11:00 AM, The House of the Black Gull (home of Vespabelle and O. Bender)
4316 NE Rodney Ave, Portland, OR, USA (Map & Directions)
UPDATED DATE due to slippery weather! Now New Year's Day Brunch! We have once again reached the deepest darkest depths of winter. At this darkest time we will gather to warm our spirits and hearts with a festive Nordic-themed brunch.
Let's celebrate the end of this year and the return of the sun.

Open House style brunch is come when you like, and come as you are! Viking hats optional.

I'll be serving up the usual fare: meatballs, herring, open-faced sandwiches, strong coffee, aquavit, licorice, sweets, and other Nordic delights. Treats and drinks to share are welcome.

That sounds awesome. But alas, I'll be flying back to Chicago on Dec. 17th and can't make it.

This sounds amazing! Will there be vegetarian options or should we BYO?

If you can keep your meatball recipe handy I would like to capture it on my phone. They are so delicious.

I have made princesstarta a few times since GBBO, so I'm very excited to taste Homodachi's version.

@janell, I pretty much use the GBBO recipe; would love to compare notes day-of!

Is it time for GAPTO (Great American PrincessTarta-Off)?

I'm moving on to flaounes as a hyper-regional fussy baking recipe to practice. :)

Flaounes has really been helping with my allergies lately.

Nick may come if we still have no electrical in our new space.

I tried out this svartbrod (black bread) recipe the other day and it's really delicious. Hearty, seeded, and a little sweet with a light rye flavor. I'm planning to bring a loaf to contribute to the open-faced sandwich substrate selection!

Thanks for coming over everyone. Secretariat's svartbrod and Monica's princesstarta were both huge hits.
