Nicolet College students offer 'Taste of Norway' lunch
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.

They can be reached at 715-365-4466 or 1-800-544-3039 ext. 4466.

"Seeing all the locals, and of course seeing all the new people coming out is just traditional!" says Jansen.
Sammy's also serves walleye and perch.
