Summer Solstice Scandinavian Dinner + Chef Jill Vedaa of Salt, Cleveland
June 21st is the longest day of the year when sunlight reigns and nighttime feels like an eternity away. We know it as the Summer Solstice, but in Scandinavia, it’s as proper of a holiday as New Year’s Eve, and more accurately known: as midsommar. So who are we to argue that we in the states, shouldn’t equally celebrate. Begging for birch branches, well-chilled aquavit and a smörgåsbord of arctic char gravlax and roasted beets with dill and creme fraiche, the very talented Jill Vedaa of Salt in Cleveland, a prestigious James Beard Semifinalist for Great Lakes, Best Chef, joins us with an inventive Nordic menu influenced by the Solstice. Invigorated by the sun’s energy , we will eat by candle light, pin some flowers in our hair and soak up as much (aquavit) and daylight we can inhale.
