New Lefse Day Children's Book

As a Norwegian American raised with Scandinavian traditions there are few things I love more than lefse. If you haven't heard of it or tried it before, it's a traditional Norwegian potato flatbread served rolled with butter and sugar. As a family we make it around the holidays and it's something we look forward to all year. With our shared love for our Norwegian heritage, my sister Kari Throop and I set out to create a Children's book honoring the tradition of making lefse titled "Lefse Day." The story along with simple colorful illustrations takes you through the steps of making lefse together as a family and includes our own family recipe at the end of the book. We are excited to share it with you and hope it inspires you to carry on the tradition of making lefse with your family. The book is now available in our Shop section here

A simple story great for families that want to pass on the tradition of making lefse.

We dedicated the book to my niece Emilie (Kari's daughter) who we hope carries on the tradition of making lefse.
