Table set for a feast
The glassworks village, Hadeland Glassverk, is a great place to explore culinary delights, with restaurants offering everything from classic dishes to traditional bakery products.
Cinnamon swirls, almond swirls, Danish swirls – in this cornucopia of aromas, it is difficult to choose. Hadeland Glassverk has craftsmanship at its core, and there is one artisan shop with a more tantalizing smell than all the others put together. Master baker Geir Antonson makes pizza swirls and buns with amazing expertise.
– I came here from Iceland five years ago and I love my trade, says Geir.
His signature bread is Icelandic rye bread, inspired by the dark, sweet, and malty versions common in Iceland.
Høvdinghallen is a true food-lover’s paradise. Shelves are overflowing with jars and bottles of every size, colour, and shape. All filled with tempting treats such as honey and jam, mustard and aioli, gravy and soup, cordials and syrup, chocolate and caramels – to mention but a few.
– We enjoy offering niche products from small-scale producers – those rare items not easily found, says product manager Gunn-Lene Velta.
With Høvdinghallen, those with an interest in locally produced Norwegian food and drink are well catered for at the traditional Hadeland Glassverk craft centre.
