While I was shopping for Barbara’s birthday present, my online research branched off into a tangential research project.
Scandinavian cooking classes.
To be specific, I was looking for Swedish cooking classes.
How do I make those tasty meatballs, is what I want to know.
So there I am, looking for Scandinavian cooking classes (I missed one on November 3rd in Reno by the Daughters of Norway), when I stumble across a resource for Nordic/Baltic goods and services in the Bay Area.
On the list, there are a number of Swedish-owned wineries, breweries, and glögg makers.
And just like that, I created a trip for me and The Swede to go on – a tour of Swedish wineries:
- Field Vineyards
- Garden Creek Vinyards
- Gustafson Family Vineyards
- Sjoeblom Winery
- Soil & Soul Wines
- West Wines
Of course my plan does require The Swede to actually PACK A BAG and COME TO CALIFORNIA.
But when he does, I have a wine outing to take him on.
