First smalahovelag on Gruvelageret

One of our locals from the western part of Norway asked if we could hold a traditional Norwegian “smalahovelag” in october, that means a party considering the Norwegian dish smalahove (sheephead). Since the smoked sheepheads had a long way to travel we had to have guests sign up in advance. We did not know what to expect, how many that would like to attend – turned out we were sold out a month in advance. With good help from our friend Marit it became a great night with a lot of food, songs, speeches, contest – and enough of the Norwegian liquor aquavit to go with the sheephead. We hope the ones that was on waiting list and did not get a place this year signs up for next year!
