RHINELANDER - Norway came to the Northwoods Tuesday -- at least a taste of it.
Nicolet College's Culinary Arts students host buffet lunches from February to March.
It gives students a chance to practice their skills. And it gives the community a chance to try foods they're probably not used to.
Second-year student Stephanie With was in charge of Tuesday's "Taste of Norway" lunch.
"It's kind of more real world as opposed to just learning things in the kitchen, now we're putting them into practice, being able to serve customers, so hopefully we'll take from that from the real world into a real kitchen," With said. "And we take pride in what we make."
The college has hosted the meals at lunch for more than 25 years.
For the first time, they've added dinners.
Instructor Vicki Mendham hopes that gives more people an opportunity to stop in.
"This has been going on since the culinary program was created, and again it's that real world experience to practice all we've learned in the other classes and bring them together in this dining experience," Mendham said.
You'll need reservations for Top of the Hill.

RHINELANDER - Wild Instincts celebrated the release of BBC's "Supercharged Otters," which filmed at Wild Instincts in Rhinelander.
Saturday's viewing at Rouman Cinema in Rhinelander had a complementary showing of the episode.
The episode features otters that spent seven months with Rehabilitation Director Mark Naniot and his team.
The episode gives people a look into the life of an otter.
"Like everything else it's the web of life. Everything's all interconnected and even if it's just the pure enjoyment of watching an otter swim or catch a fish and seeing how playful they are sliding down a mudslide or sliding through the snow that alone is immeasurable really," said Naniot.
