North Coast Nosh Curated by Sean Sherman at the History Center
NOTE: THE NORTH COAST NOSH IS SOLD OUT. WE’LL SEE YOU THURSDAY NIGHT!
Since launching the North Coast Nosh in 2011, we’ve wrestled with the intersection of food and geography. What makes food “local”? Who are the purveyors and food artisans we’re most excited to introduce to our readers, and vice versa?
On the evening of Thursday, Feb. 19, we’re putting a new spin on the event by presenting a North Coast Nosh curated by Sean Sherman, “The Sioux Chef.” Sherman is a culinary explorer dedicated to teaching about and cooking food inspired by the diet of precolonial American Indians. His combination of ultra-local ingredients and haute cuisine technique makes for unforgettable dishes and meaningful stories.
Sherman, the Heavy Table, and the Minnesota Historical Society have gathered together around 20 purveyors who will share samples of food and drink inspired by native ingredients and techniques.
Sherman, author Heid Erdrich (Original Local), and Heartland chef Lenny Russo will be on site to give illuminating talks and answer questions; the gorgeous halls of the History Center will be our venue, and American Indian art and artifacts — including the art of distinguished Ojibwe artist George Morrison — will be on display.
Purveyors joining us at the History Center include:
Bon Appetit Management Company
Dinner on the Farm
Dream of Wild Health
Farm Table Restaurant
Hungry Turtle Institute
Little Earth Tribal Gardens
Red Lake Nation Fishery
Red Thunderbird Endeavors
Sioux Chef, The
