A Trio of Shout Outs

In Sphere of Skiver Spotlight on January 5, 2010 at 1:02 am

A few months ago, I started a little networking group for small local businesses like mine. We called ourselves the Prez Club. Like my friend Katie said, it’s lonely at the top! For most of us there isn’t too terribly far to fall, but 3 of the businesses in the group have recently gotten some major press and I’m really excited to share their well-deserved success!


Æbleskivers in New York Magazine!

Look familiar? If you've visited Aunt Else's Æbleskiver booth at the Mill City Farmers Market it will.

I received an email a few months back from chef Shannon Wilkinson (former producer of Top Chef) while she was in the process of opening a new restaurant called Henry Public, in the Cobble Hill neighborhood of  Brookly, NY. Shannon was including æbleskiver, a childhood family favorite, on Henry Public’s menu and was in search of an aebleskiver pan that would work well in her restaurant’s busy kitchen.

I’m so excited that our 9-hole æbleskiver pan is almost ready! When I say “our”, I mean Aunt Else’s Aebleskiver’s new pan. I absolutely love the fact that we’ve been able to keep the work local, and so proud that each pan is marked “MADE IN MINNESOTA, USA”. I’ve been amazed at how much we’ve learned, and after stopping to think about things I realized that it’s been in the works for a while now.
