Inger Gregersen was born in Norway and immigrated to Parkland, Washington with her husband and eleven-month old daughter in 1951. The family stayed there for six years and then spent five years in France and four in Germany. Parkland was their favorite area, however, and they returned there permanently in 1966. In Parkland, Inger belonged to Nordlandslaget, a group of males and females that come from northern Norway. She taught Scandinavian cooking at Fort Steilacoom (Pierce College) and participated in food demonstrations during Mayfest at Pacific Lutheran University. At home, Inger cooks both Scandinavian and American foods. She enjoys the wider variety of recipes available in American cooking.
