This is a little cross-posting action with my other blog, but this book is worth posting twice.
Minnesota Homegrown Cookbook: published by Renewing the Countryside
Renewing the Countryside et al have been busting their butts for the past three years working on a cookbook that features 100 recipes from 38 of Minnesota's crucial chefs and restaurants who are committed to locally grown, organic, sustainable food.
I got my hands on a pre-press copy a few weeks ago, and thought the the book was goooooorgeous then. I now have a copy in my office, and I love it even more. It will certainly take center stage on your coffee table and your kitchen counter before it hits the cookbook shelf.
Recipes of interest for me include: The Birchwood's Strawberry Rhubarb Cornmeal Cobbler, El Norteno's enchilada sauce, and Heartland's Green Gazpacho.
Other recipes come from Lucia’s, Café Brenda, Spoonriver, Heartland, New Scenic Café, Angry Trout Café, Restaurant Alma, Brasa, Bryant Lake Bowl, Barbette, Red Stag, Bayport Cookery, Birchwood Café, Hell’s Kitchen, Nosh, Heartland, New Scenic Cafe, Minwanjige Café, and several more Minnesota favorites.
