More than 400 people tasted local cheeses, beers, meats, and candies at the sixth North Coast Nosh, hosted by The Heavy Table and the American Swedish Institute. They all looked like they were going home happy and well fed. But the ones who looked positively energized by the experience were the 35 vendors.
Of course, the Swedish meatballs went fast and by the end of the event, all that was left was three bowls of pickled herring in dill, wine, and cream. Wisely, Ingebretsen’s was set up right next to Gamle Ode’s table. Dill aquavit in one hand, herring in cream in the other — that’s true Minnesotan nosh.
