Little Bites: Nordic Cuisine, Oregon Ingredients

6-Course Scandinavian Dinner Sends CCI Students Abroad

Food allows us to travel to other countries without leaving home—and for us here in Central Oregon, right now that means an opportunity to discover Scandinavia through a traditional Nordic dinner.

In May, 25 culinary students from Tekniske Skole in Silkeborg, Denmark are visiting through Cascade Culinary Institute's International Exchange Program. The students will spend two weeks exploring Oregon wine country, visiting farms, foraging and sharing their culture and cooking techniques with CCI students. The culmination of their visit: a six-course Nordic dinner featuring seasonally available ingredients from the Pacific Northwest.

Thor Erickson, the chef instructor and department chair at CCI, describes Nordic cuisine as, "seasonal, uses fresh local flavors with a delicate touch that pays homage to the earth." Watched "Tasting Table" on Netflix? Then think of the cuisine of Magnus Nilsson. (Never watched it? Add it to your queue now, foodie friends.)

One of the items on the menu is poached and fried king crab with butter poached romaine salad and classic Hollandaise. The dinner, which includes wine pairings, is happening one night only. The proceeds help make it possible for local students to have culinary experiences in Denmark and Bend's sister city, Belluno, Italy.
