If you ever find yourself in Chicago the second Saturday of the month,  and you have a craving for some Torsk, the solution may be a visit to the Chicago Torske Klub. - Stavanger Aftenblad - 26 May 2006

Welcome to the Chicago Torske Klub Web Site at torskeklub.org! It's good to be in Chicago on the second Saturday of the month.  We will update this monthly for current events and dinner meeting news.

December 8, 2018 - Christmas Celebration

Our annual Christmas Celebration is scheduled with David Langseth leading, assisted by Clarence Petersen and the local elves. A smoked salmon appetizer is ordered, and it is good day to bring a friend. The reservation line is open.

November 10, 2018 - Tallesin Preservation

We met for our monthly delicacy with our scheduled speaker, Carrie Rodamaker from the Taliesin Preservation organization in Spring Green WI. Their mission is summarized on their web page:

"The construction and conception of Taliesin is unique and requires a unique approach to preservation. Taliesin served as a 1:1 scale model for Wright to explore design concepts, structural assemblies, and materials. We strive to restore the historic core of Taliesin to the decade of 1950-59, the last years of Wright's lifetime. Many of the projects that the preservation team undertakes involve the unraveling of layers of historic material; providing evidence of earlier iterations of Taliesin. Throughout this process drawings and documentation are used to make decisions, as well as, to record the techniques and materials used to restore the buildings on the Taliesin estate."

Thanks to Carrie and Thor Johndal as torskemaster.
