Beatrice Ojakangas: My Life in Food

Beatrice Ojakangas has been called the “Julia Child of Finnish cuisine.” Her first book, (and the first cookbook on Finnish cuisine), The Finnish Cookbook, is now in its 38th printing. She grew up on a small farm in Minnesota and graduated from the University of Minnesota–Duluth. Childhood 4-H, college Home Economics, and work as a hospital dietary assistant, food editor, teacher, homemaker, and mother influenced her cooking career and her food writing for such publications as Gourmet, Bon Appétit, Woman’s Day, Family Circle, Better Homes and Gardens, Midwest Living, Cooking Light, and numerous newspapers.

With her trademark enthusiasm, James Beard Hall of Fame honoree Beatrice Ojakangas will tell stories of growing up, her life as a food writer, and the passion for food that propelled her to author 29 cookbooks and a memoir. Enjoy sampling some of her favorite recipes in a family style dinner at Forage.
