How to throw a Kräftskiva

In Sweden, August 7 marks the start of a the kräftpremiär, or the crayfish hunting season. This season brings with it festive outdoor dinner parties, complete with singing, colorful decorations, and plenty of food and drink.

To experience a crayfish party in full force, visitors can always join ASI’s annual celebration, but those looking for a way to pull off a Swedish crayfish party at home can turn to Patrice Johnson for guidance. In this evening class, she’ll share all her tips for preparing (and eating!) crayfish, along with a slate of traditional and modern accompaniments. This class is demonstration based with some opportunities for participation, and will be held outside, weather permitting.
