Dooley_Savory coverMette Nielsen will be at Norway House on Sunday, October 1 at 11:00 a.m. for a demonstration and talk about her and Beth Dooley's new book, Savory Sweet: Simple Preserves from a Northern Kitchen. There is a $5 fee for attending the demo, which includes food samples and occurs before the talk and signing, which begins at 1:00 p.m. You are welcome to attend one or both parts of the event.


“Let’s dispense with the usual old notions of preserving,” Beth Dooley suggests, leading us into Mette Nielsen’s kitchen, where old-world Danish traditions meld with the freshest ideas and latest techniques. Their approach combines the bright, bold flavors of Nordic cuisines while emphasizing the local, the practical, and the freshest ingredients to turn each season’s produce into a bounty of condiments.


"Mette Nielsen and Beth Dooley have conjured one of those books you'll stain, stuff with Post-it notes, and save. Anyone can make a tomato taste good, but a parsnip, as in a very good sweet parsnip preserve? Now we're talking imagination. We may yearn for entire weekends of making old-time preserves, yet it's rarely possible. These two make this happen on work nights in time to slather your new condiment over that 'same-old' veggie burger with swell results. This one is a keeper." —Lynne Rossetto Kasper, host, The Splendid Table® from American Public Media


"This delightful book is full of promise—the promise of summer being everlasting, the promise of the beguiling sweet and savory flavors of herbs, fruit, vegetables and surprising spices and combinations gracing a winter table. I love its practical side, too, such as the use of dried fruit when it’s better than fresh—a situation I’m too familiar with. This is a lovely work." —Deborah Madison, author of Vegetable Literacy and The New Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone
