Zwieback Food Demonstration April 28

Posted on April 13, 2012 by hchamber

            During the 125th Celebration of Henderson, the goal is to Honor the Past, Celebrate the Present and Explore the Future.  Each month there will be an opportunity to honor the past as Ethnic Food Demonstrations will be held one Saturday each month.  This month the students will learn how to make Zwieback from Mary Ellen Pankratz in her home at 10:00 a.m on Saturday, April 28.

The schedule for the year is as follows: May 5, Verenika & Ham Gravy; June 16, Rull Kuchen; July 28, Green Bean Soup; August 18, Priescha; September, Russian Pancakes; October 13, Schnetya; November 25, Peppernuts; December 29, New Year’s Cookies.

These hands-on demonstrations cost $15 per person.  Included in this cost is all the ingredients used for the class, the hand-on instruction, taste testing during the class, and any additional food made during this class will be taken home by those attending.  Each participant will also receive the recipe for each class they attend, so they can make the recipes at home.

There are only 17 spots available for this class, so it is best if tickets are purchased ahead of time at the Henderson Chamber Office to ensure that you have a spot.  For more information or to order your tickets, contact the Henderson Chamber at (402) 723-4228 or email Tickets can also be purchased online at in the Q125 store.
