KOLACHE, BAKING , DUMPLING AND INTERNATIONAL FOODS CLASSES
In 2006 as Chairman of the Czech/Kolache Festival a decision was made to introduce the Kolache to the Festival. We baked 2500 at the Heritage Farm. People would stop me and ask if I was the Kolache Lady. My reply ,” I guess I am” . I felt the Festival needed to focus on one of the most loved Sweet Dough treats made by most of our Czech mothers and grandmothers each Saturday morning. People constantly inquired if I would teach a Kolache Class-my answer —“I will consider it.” In 2007 I decided that I would try teaching the classes with the help of a team of wonderful ladies. . I sincerely thought that within 2 years the interest would diminish- 2016 is the 8th year I have been teaching the classes, each day I receive requests from all over the state . We have added Easter Baking, Christmas Baking, Dumpling Classes. Recently our group has developed the “International Foods Class” . I wanted to involve the 2 students attending Kewaunee High school living with Paul and Julie Thoreson. On April 30 a Dumpling Class with an International Flair will be taught. Teresa from the Czech Republic and Ana originally from the Ukraine , now living in Switzerland will be demonstrating and participating in the Dumpling Class with an International Flair. The recipes for the Ukrainian Borsch and the Czech Desserts are coming from their grandmothers.. The International Foods class will represent foods from : Czech Republic, Ukraine, Denmark , Germany, Poland and Germany. An entire dinner will be served at the conclusion of each class. This Fall the International Foods Class will be taught for UWGB –LIR at the Heritage Farm. The Heritage team for all the classes are: JoAnn Vogel, Manager, Voni Kinjerski, Julie Thoreson, Connie Roethle, Jean Sager, Marion Mlezvia, Mary Langer, Ethel Kuehl, & Linda Sinkula,

From 2005 to 2015 all of our participants were treated to a fantastic scenic ride through Northeastern Wisconsin’s most beautiful byways. In 2016, this great tradition continues!

It all begins at 9:00 a.m. as we will travel east on part of the Ahnapee Trail to Casco and then on to the Tex Dellis homestead to see an amazing collection of farm equipment. From there, following roads through the heart of Kewaunee County, we head over to Joe Rouer’s in Duvall for a great meal including the famous burgers! Our trip back will include some the most scenic roads you can experience.
