Gloria Johnson and Erika Suo will demonstrate how to make pulla, a Finnish cardamom bread, in Gloria’s kitchen in Oulu, Wisconsin. Gloria has held many classes in her home to teach this baking art. She has also helped Erika pass on this tradition to local youth who attend summer school classes at the Oulu Cultural and Heritage Center.
Co-sponsored by Finn Fest USA and the Nordic Folklife project at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, the folk arts series features artists, community members, culture workers, and scholars—all experts in various forms of Finnish folk arts. Links to the virtual program will be sent to your registered email address one day in advance of the event.
Although this event is free and open to anyone who can and wants to take part, we do hope you will consider donating to the Finn Fest USA organization, whose hard work and dedication makes events like this possible.
