Founded in Minnesota in 1946 by Dorothy and H. David Dalquist, Nordic Ware began by selling specialty Scandinavian ethnic cookware products. Soon, the company expanded into Bundt pans, microwave cookware, bakeware, cookware and grilling accessories. Jennifer Dalquist carries on her family's legacy as Director of Sales and marketing, and is recognized as a leader and innovator in her industry. Since many of our members will once again use their Nordic Ware to prepare traditional fare over the holidays, it's the perfect time for Jennifer to present on this important company's 70 years of history.

Gwen Daniels, the creator of NorSari, invented the woolly outer-skirt to survive the cold Minnesota winter. “I started wrapping a blanket around my waist before heading out the door to get in my cold car to drive to work. I couldn’t believe how warm it kept me! Soon, I was wearing the blanket even at work. At that point I decided I needed to make myself a wrap that looked a little more stylish”. Daniels shared her idea with family and friends, refined her product over the course of a couple winters, and NorSari was born. Now she offers the wrap in three sizes and an assortment of wool fabrics. So warm! So easy! Why didn’t I think of that? (text courtesy blog www.nordesque.com , Amy Boxrud)
