Christmas in Scandinavia is a month long celebration of midwinter with lots of festive get-togethers. ‘Tis the season of conviviality for us Scandis, replete with delicious food and drink, singing, laughing and dancing…it’s about making merry during the darkest days of the year. A Scandi Christmas is about effortless entertaining and above all, just having fun.

So we at EatScandi HQ have decided to share with you the secrets of a Scandinavian Christmas in the form of an informal workshop. Come join us and celebrate all things yule at Central Street Cookery School where you’ll get to try our delicious EatScandi gløgg (Scandi mulled wine), sample our new winter-cured salmon, assorted spelt breads, sides and salads and of course taste the classic Scandi Christmas biscuit selection that is so typical of the Christmas season in our little corner of the world. This is food and drink to enjoy throughout the month of December, not just that one day towards the end of the month and we’ll show you how easy it is to do at home. 

The final menu is emailed to you the week before the workshop but in the meantime have a look at a sample of some of the dishes we’ll be making below. There will be a mini demonstration at the beginning of the workshop to talk you through how to entertain at Christmas, and then it’s all about tucking into the dishes we’ll have prepared for your arrival. There will even be a little goody bag of yule treats for you to take home :)

Hope to see you there,

Sig x

    Dear Scandilicious,

    I have been looking for a scandinavian cookery class for ages and ages and never found one, and now I find one it was 2days ago!! Are you doing anymore? Thankyou for such beautiful posts, by the way.



    • Hi Maria,

      many thanks for your comment, what a shame you couldn’t join us on Saturday at Bertinet Kitchen!

      I’m working on a schedule of Scandinavian cookery classes for the coming months so do pop in again for a full list, and I’ll be in touch too once I have a clear idea of which venues I’ll be doing them in.

      All the best,

      Sig x

    Failed to book to see you at Hay Festival – sold out before the booking opened!! where else are you demonstating or giving classes this summer?
    I would love to come and my daughter is desperate!
    Kind regards

    • Hi Vicki, thanks for your message. I’m sorry to hear the talk at Hay was booked out before the lines even opened! According to their website tickets don’t appear to be sold out yet so not sure what’s happened.

      As for your question about future classes/demos I am indeed doing more of them throughout the spring and summer:

      19th May: Leiths School of Food and Wine Scandinavian Class

      2nd June (TBC) Cambridge Cookery School Scandinavian Midsummer Class

      11th June: Yellow Lighted Book Festival

      14th July: Ways With Words Festival

      Abergavenny Food Festival (date TBC)

      Hope that helps!

    Congratulations on the book launch.

    Wow, looks like you have a really full diary. Since I know next to nothing about Scandinavian food, am going to get your book and try to get to one of these events.
