Taste Of Scandinavia

To go along with the theme of my Danish Pork Chops, is a lovely little gem of a restaurant, privately owned, that I came across while doing work in Home Care several years ago.  Actually located inside of a Festival Food-Market in Bloomington, MN - I hear they have distinctive breakfasts and pastries, although I used to frequent it for lunch.  My sincere favorite on the menu is the Norwegian Chicken Lefse Melt.  Delightfully made of grilled chicken, red pepper, spinach, mushroom, asiago, swiss and mozzarella wrapped and grilled in a large round of lefse.  Incredible really, it always left me convinced that I had ordered the right thing.

Made from scratch - shortbread, filled with the finest raspberry jam,

and finished with their signature lemon icing ...
                                                   Raspberry Lemonade Cookies.
European Scones, served with butter and jams ...

A wonderfully traditional Vienna style bread, topped with a flavorful crunchy rise based topping
perfect for sandwiches or spreads ...

Traditional meatballs and mashed potatoes with creamy gravy,
 and lingonberries on the side ...

 On their catering menu is Baked Brie with fresh fruit and carmel sauce ...

and ...
                                                                                           European bread baskets

                                                                                          the Dutch Shoe Company, they
                                                                                        have biodegradable sneekers,
                                                                                                 seeded with life.

Wow, I have never eaten lefse with anything other than butter and sugar. The chicken dish sounds wonderful! The scandinavian food makes me long for family dinners way back when we would fix these things at special holidays.
