A loaf of fresh baked bread brings happiness to even devils. ~Finnish Proverb

If you haven’t had a slice of Finnish cardamom bread with a cup of coffee, you haven’t lived.  The Historical Society of Cheshire County and the Finnish Heritage Society-Sovittaja invite the general public to sample and sip at their Great Finnish Bread Bake-off on Saturday, April 29th from 10am-12pm.  With a $5.00 admission, visitors will taste-test six varieties of homemade bread, known as nisu or pulla in Finnish, and vote for their favorite recipe in the categories of amateur and professional.  Anyone interested in trying more than six varieties is encouraged to purchase another six tastings for $5.00 more.  The People’s Choice award will be announced at 11:30am.  Proceeds from this event will be used to support a variety of educational programs at the Historical Society showcasing the mosaic of talents and cultures that make up Cheshire County.  The Finnish Heritage Society-Sovittaja of Rutland, MA, will serve a free cup of coffee to visitors, demonstrate bread making, and answer questions.  Tickets for this event may be purchased in advance by clicking here.  Anyone interested in entering the bake-off as a contestant is asked to contact the Historical Society at 603/352-1895 or email dired@hsccnh.org.
