In the poem about Hárbard and Thor, a Viking meal is described. Thor tries to persuade the ferryman Hárbard – Odin in disguise – to take him over a sound: “Ferry me over the sound, then I will feed you tomorrow! I have a basket on my back, never was the food better. I ate in peace before I left home, herrings and oatmeal, so I am still full.”
We will feed you a feast of a meal, all while educating you on Viking Food and Drink in celebration of the ancient race. There might be a surprise guest or two as well!  Sign up soon before this fun event sells out!
