Lapskaus Soup: From our Kitchen to Yours

February 23, 2022, 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM


A Special Note: This is an all-online demonstration with no in-person tickets. 





This online demonstration will warm your heart. It’s the perfect time for the wintery and hearty Norwegian soup “Lapskaus”. Learn how to make this traditional recipe, along with options to suit your particular taste buds. This demonstration features Broder Söder’s chef, along with our own Cook & Eat committee. Whether you have made this recipe for years or are brand new to it — you won’t want to miss the opportunity. You will appreciate an “ancient classic” that is still relevant and practical today.

You can’t beat a classic. This traditional soup from Norway is great for its hardy meat and potatoes. There are many techniques and vegetables to add that make this soup your own.

Refunds: All ticket sales are final.
