Launch event for SAVORY SWEET at the Birchwood Cafe

Please join Beth Dooley and Mette Nielsen for an open house book launch event celebrating the publication of Savory Sweet. Samples of recipes included in the book will be served, and books will be available for purchase. This event is free with registration.
“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.
"Beth Dooley and Mette Nielsen break through the mystery of the pickle in these masterfully created recipes on preserving the northern way. They explore produce from the cucumber to the gooseberry in imaginative but approachable and fun ways." —Paul Berglund, 2016 James Beard Foundation Best Chef: Midwest
"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
