Description

Take a guided tour through the locavore's delight that is the Land of 10,000 Lakes through travel stories, recipes, and menu ideas.

The Minnesota Table is a culinary travelogue that takes you through the seasons, around the state, and back to your table with menus, recipes, and pointers for preparing local foods. Travel along in spring, summer, fall, and winter as we hunt morels, pick blueberries, winnow wild rice, and come nose-to-nose with yaks, elk, and bison. Meet gardening nuns and artisan farmers who breathe color and warmth into the argument for sustainable agriculture. Try new twists on classic and regional recipes that take the pure flavors of fresh, local ingredients to new heights. Recipes include Grilled Rainbow Trout with Chive-lemon Pepper Butter, Wild Rice Dried Cranberry Salad with Clementine Vinaigrette, and Kale and Walnut Saute. Charming watercolors and lush color photographs illustrate the recipes and profiles and bring the culinary adventure to life!
