Harmony arts board sponsors special event

Posted in Harmony Arts & Culture

HARMONY, Minn. — The Harmony Arts Board proudly presents a wonderful collaboration between well-known chef, Stephen Larson, and Lanesboro’s Habberstad House Bed and Breakfast owner and author, Nancy Huisenga, during a rare afternoon event that is free to the public. Savor both Nancy’s honest and humorous confessions as she reads from her newly-released hit book, “Behind the Door Marked ‘Private’: Confessions of a Small Town Bed and Breakfast Owner”, as well as Chef Larson’s presentation of several delicious samples of the Habberstad House breakfast menu.

Held at the ever-popular QUARTER/quarter Restaurant and Wine Bar, 25 Center Street East in Harmony, Minn., on Sunday, October 13, from 3:30 – 5 p.m., this free event will feature Larson preparing a sample menu consisting of Huisenga’s Dutch Apple Pannekoeken, Scotch Eggs, Tres Leches Cake, Potato Cakes, and Anna’s Cornbread, presented in tasting portions with his usual panache.

Huisenga and Larson have collaborated in the past, when Larson spent several afternoons at the Habberstad House helping Huisenga and her husband Dave revamp their breakfasts with some new recipes, much needed after seven years running the premier B&B, located in Lanesboro, Minn.

Huisenga is known throughout the area not only for the excellent reputation of the Habberstad House Bed and Breakfast, which she has operated in Lanesboro, Minn. with her husband Dave since the year 2000, but also for the many roles she has played when acting for the Commonweal Theatre Company and other local theater groups. Her most recent portrayal of the eccentric Madame Arcati in the Commonweal’s summer production of Noel Coward’s comedy “Blithe Spirit”, was a smash hit.

In December of 2012, Huisenga published her first book, “Does a Zebra Know It’s Striped?” for children, followed now by the B&B book, which recounts her personal journey from being St. Paul “city slicker” to small town B&B owner over a 12-year period. Reading the book that is filled with recipes, laughter and some of Nancy’s tears, reviewers are heaping praise, such as the following:

“Nancy Huisenga is an insightful storyteller who captured life in the quaint artsy town of Lanesboro, Minnesota. She shared the joys and trials of transforming a Victorian home into a top-notch B&B. A must-read for anyone contemplating such an endeavor. She generously included their Habberst .....
