Great Finnish Bread Bake-Off
April 29 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Great Finnish Bread Bake-Off will be held on Sunday, April 29 from 3-5 pm. Last year over 100 people attended the event to taste-test varieties of the Finnish cardamom bread called nisu or pulla. The event was so successful that the organizers decided to move it to a bigger venue this year –The Inn at East Hill Farm, 460 Monadnock Road in Troy, New Hampshire.
Admission to the bake-off is $7 for adults, $3 children (5-14), 4 and under free, with a $20 cap per family. Tickets for the event may be purchased in advance by visiting the Historical Society at 246 Main Street, Keene, NH. Admission comes with a ballot allowing the public to vote for their favorite recipe to win a People’s Choice award. The event will also include beverages provided by the Inn at East Hill Farm, bread making tips and demonstrations, music, and a tricky tray auction. Proceeds from the event support the Historical Society’s educational programming, which is dedicated to celebrating the variety of cultures and talents that make up Cheshire County.
This year’s bake-off is co-sponsored by the Finnish Heritage Society Sovittaja and the Historical Society of Cheshire County. The Finnish Heritage Society-Sovittaja is a nonprofit social, cultural and charitable organization devoted to promoting scholarship and Finnish heritage and culture. Sovittaja Park is in Rutland, MA.
