Way better than the ones at Ikea.
Last month I had buffet-side seating at As You Like It's Ultimate Kottbullar (Swedish meatball) contest at the Swedish Cultural Center. The winning recipe came from Brigitta and Gunnar Wallin, true Swedes through and through, who stuck to the basics and pulled off a ball that even the toughest critics were happy to snack on.
To celebrate the Wallin's achievement and bring their kottbullar to the masses, As You Like It is holding an open-to-the-public dinner at the Center on June 14. Tickets are $30 and get you access to the no-host bar at 6 p.m. followed by the meatball buffet at 7. More information is available by calling 206-523-9570.
