Evergreen Foraging with Maria Wesserle

Just because it’s the dead of winter doesn’t mean you have to stop foraging! Evergreens are easy to spot amongst the otherwise grey landscape, and they have a long history of treating coughs and colds, and supplying much-needed vitamins A and C during the winter. They have been used by Nordic cooks to brighten flavors and have caught the attention of New Nordic Cuisine chefs for new, experimental foods. 
This class will focus on traditional uses as you make make pine-infused vinegar, pine switchel, hot tea, juniper salt and a bit of juniper butter to spread on tasty slices of rye bread. Join Maria Wesserle, founder of Four Season Foraging to learn which evergreens to harvest and which to avoid. Together, you will go over identification of different evergreen species, and foraging etiquette.

Aurora at First Ave

It is as if pure magic runs through AURORA’s veins. Enchanting by name and by nature, there’s something decidedly singular and strange about this tiny Nordic musician with the massive talent. With an eye-watering 200 million+ streams and 500,000+ sales for her stunning 2016 debut album, All My Demons Greeting Me As A Friend, it’s hard to believe that the dynamic Norwegian singer/songwriter is still only 21, and AURORA is now pushing things forward like never before.

Ásgeir at The Cedar

How do you follow up the fastest selling debut album in Icelandic history, a record that out-performed even national treasures Björk and Sigur Rós’ first releases? At first 24-year-old sensation Ásgeir, returning at last in 2017 with daringly electronic new album Afterglow, pretended to those around him that the heat wasn’t on, that the stakes weren’t high. “I used to tell most people that I didn’t feel any pressure,” he laughs now. “But I was lying. I didn’t want to go into that discussion.”
