2:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Following our successful Swedish Meatball Cook-off in 2013, at our May 17th meeting we will host a Swedish Iron Chef competition! This is a great opportunity for our members and friends to show off their culinary skills by entering a sweet or savory dish in the competition. The catch--all entries must include lingonberries as an ingredient. Local celebrity chefs will be on hand to judge the entries and award prizes.
By Sunday, May 10th, members and friends wishing to submit entries should notify the Lodge of their desire to be a part of the competition. The Lodge will provide beverages and snacks, but each entry should also feed at least 6 people to share with the audience following the competition. All entries must be at the Lodge by 2:30 pm on May 17, 2015.
An abbreviated business meeting will follow the competition.
Our local lodge, Drott Lodge No. 168, was chartered on February 18th, 1910 in Washington, D.C. and is one of four local lodges governed by District Lodge No. 9 Pennsylvania. Today, Drott Lodge maintains a multi-generational roll of 200-plus members from the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia. The Lodge meets most 2nd Sundays of the month at St. James' Episcopal Church in Potomac, Maryland. Most meetings include a regular business meeting followed by a cultural presentation by a visiting speaker or a member of the lodge. The Lodge is well known throughout the greater Washington metropolitan area for its annual Swedish Bazaar held the first Saturday in November.
