Blen-DINNER #1: Savour Scandinavia!
Hosts: Gail & Veli Niinimaa
This meal will be like no other… enjoy the simplicity and tastiness of a Scandinavian smorgasbord! This Scandinavian feast will include many authentic treasures such as marinated herring and salmon, liver pate, meatballs, potato casserole, ham, red cabbage, pickled beets, salads, rye bread, rice porridge and desserts.
With their Finnish heritage as part of the back-drop, Gail & Veli will share the various meats & dishes special to them PLUS, with their extensive history on the National Biathlon team, they can regale you with stories of Olympics past like no one else! You’ll be sorry if you forget to ask to see their Calgary Winter Olympics medals (as well as where their indoor shooting range used to be!).
Drinks: Some beer & wine will be served at dinner; please feel free to bring any specific preferences. Please ensure a safe ride home.
