Your Cart is Empty

Here in the United States we are slowly taking back control of our food as we go through our farm-to-table revolution. Farmers’ markets are popping up in many communities, and as a nation we are becoming more focused on organic foods. In Norway, it’s always been farm to table, or even ship to table.

Bergen Sweden

In the breathtakingly beautiful harbor of historic Bergen, there is a large open-air fish market where you can watch the busy chefs sautéeing freshly caught shrimp, salmon and cod on outdoor griddles for on-the-spot feasts. At these same stands, you find cauldrons of bubbling fish stew and rich simmering seafood paellas. You also come across stalls carrying fresh cheeses and ‘Setersmør’. Smør is the Norwegian word for butter and seter refers to the mountainous, summer farms where butter and cheeses were traditionally made, evoking a sense of pure, wholesome quality.

Many Norwegians are closely attuned to the changing seasons and buy fruits and vegetables as soon as they are harvested. Cheerful stands heaped high with colorful, seasonal berries and leafy produce abound. The mountains, the sea and the medieval architecture of Bergen are mightily impressive. Visit the marketplace downtown, and you find yourself in another world!

Did I mention she won Chopped with “the best dessert on this show ever”? Needless to say, we were thrilled she agreed to be featured in the second installment of our Chef Series!

Red Dot Awards Ceremony & Gala

by Jojo Frey July 12, 2017

I headed into the Designer's Night party at the Red Dot Museum in search of Churncraft. Words can't describe how exciting it was to turn the corner and see our Churncraft butter churn beautifully displayed in the culinary section of the "Living" exhibit. Nestled in between Cuisinart and Breville, our butter churn stood out as one of the most beautiful and unique products there.
