Discussion

Anybody have info on Danish Seaman's Church smorgasbord?

So around this time last year there was some discussion of an annual Scandi food event at a church in/around Brooklyn Heights. I couldn't go then, but put it on my calendar (filed under "ljutefisk time?") to look for it in '06. Does anybody have dets?

  1. I went to it last year; sadly, no ljutefisk. But there was plenty of sandwiches and snacks - it was a great time. However, I think it was right before Thanksgiving, possibly right after.

    BTW, here's my old post on the subject:

    1. The DANISH CHURCH FAIR is great. Every Dane in the tri-State area participates. It is a great place to try Danish dishes and buy Danish Goods. Last year I bought one pound tins of Danish Butter Cookies for $1, and marzipan at a great price.

      They have dining tables set up in their garden, and it is very festive.

      You might want to check the BROOKLYN HEIGHTS PRESS for the announcements.

      For local color, and home made specialty foods, there is also YANKEE FAIR at PLYMOUTH CHURCH of the PIGRIMS and the WINTER FAIR at GRACE CHURCH.

      1. Here is a thread about last year's fair:

          1. Just a bump so people know that this is happening tomorrow, November 18. It's a good time, and the actual Danish church is a good place to go for glogg and Christmas shopping for your Scandinavian friends.
