Lutefisk Traditions in the Upper Midwest Recommended Member Picks Agenda

When: Sat., Dec. 10 2011

Due to some overbaked family lore, when I was a kid I thought of lutefisk, the notoriously nasty lye-cured Scandinavian fish dish, as something absolutely inedible. In truth it's not that bad, though the texture is—to be charitable—unique. If you're looking to further demystify the dish, seek out Scandinavian studies PhD candidate Carrie Roy when she gives a talk entitled Lutefisk Traditions in the Upper Midwest, at which she'll screen her DVD Where the Sacred Meets the Quivering Profane: Exploring the Public and Private Spheres of Lutefisk. For another take on cod, see this week's Key Ingredient on page 27. —Sam Worley
