Swedish Cheesecake Class ONLINE
November 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Did you know that Sweden has its very own cheesecake?
Swedish cheesecake or Swedish curd cake, is a Swedish dessert that has its roots in two different parts of Sweden, Hälsingland and Småland, though there are some differences between ostkaka from Hälsingland and ostkaka from Småland.
The dish has a rather firm consistency and subtle, creamy taste with a hint of almonds. It is usually eaten lukewarm with different jams, typically cloudberry, cherries or strawberry though lingonberry is often used, as well as fruits, whipped cream or, more rarely, ice cream.
Despite the similarity in literal translation, ostkaka should not be confused with cheesecake which is a layered cake. Swedes typically call the latter by its English name, sometimes making it “American cheesecake”, to avoid confusion. Though even then, Scandinavian restaurant menus sometimes confuse the two.
You can now learn how to make your own together with Karin Moen Abercrombie. The class will take place via Zoom. You will get an email with recipe and zoom code before the event. This event is $10.
