  • Kransekake

    Kransekake – A Norwegian & Danish Celebration Cake

    Fifteen years ago this month, a kransekake stood tilting on the cake table at my wedding reception. Adorned with tiny Swedish and Norwegian flags, it hinted at the respective heritages of both my groom and myself. I don’t know if…

  • Rømmegrøt

    Norwegian Rømmegrøt (Sour Cream Porridge)

    My bookshelves sag with stories—literature in the form of recipes, memories formed between batter-spattered handwritten lines. I’ve said for a long time that I care so much about Scandinavian food because of the people. My grandparents loved me with medisterkaker…

  • Bløtkake

    Norwegian Bløtkake with Strawberries and Cream

    When it comes to cake, I know two things for sure: A mediocre one is barely worth eating, and Scandinavia–especially Norway–boasts some of the best in the world. Take the classic Norwegian birthday and celebration cake, bløtkake–which translates roughly to wet…
