Rachel Hutton Named As Minnesota Monthly’s Food Critic
Writer Rachel Hutton is taking the food critic post at Minnesota Monthly that was recently vacated by Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl. Hutton worked at Minnesota Monthly from 2002-2007 (holding the lead critic job for her last two or so years), and subsequently served as the lead reviewer for City Pages. Reached by email, Hutton wrote: “I’m looking forward to discovering and sharing more stories of Minnesota’s often-underestimated food and restaurant scene!”
