The broad-minded Norwegians eat Swedish pastries at the fantastic Fabrique, on 14th Street just east of 9th Ave. This one, called semla, is an airy roll with almonds, sweet almond paste and tons of fresh whipped cream. The Norwegian version is, it seems, more plain. I grabbed a cardamom bun for later, which was just as good. These have something to do with Lent, or Shrovetide, whatever that is. Either the 3 days before Easter or the 3 days before Lent, meaning Mardi Gras. Well, Norwegian or not, Christian or not, these were delicious.
