About the instructor: Rena Hartman Rothauge says, "I am a budding, self-taught chef focused on my rich Scandinavian Heritage as it translates to modern fresh dishes. I am in the process of building a growing social media following with my project Langt Nord Liv. I am a Minnesota native, a writer, and a Midwestern maximalist, obsessed with all upper Midwestern oddities. My husband and I moved here from Oregon four years ago and love the wilderness surrounding us. We have a beautiful daughter, a big Chesapeake mix, and a crazy Vizsla puppy along with too many houseplants to count.

"I’ve been teaching cooking to my stepdaughter via Zoom, coordinated teaching projects with Mesabi Symphony Orchestra, and assisted Lynn Evenson in teaching those lessons in various high school classrooms. I hold a graduate degree from New York University and am currently pursuing a certification as a health coach in integrative nutrition."
