The Big Ol’ Monday Fair Roundup
Rick Nelson rates the Fair grub (warning: story features soul-chilling photo of a returned spirit eating a tater dog), Martha and Tom do the fair proud with their eating tour (and, hey, reference our own lengthy list!), Katie has shots of all the new food at the State Fair over on Metromix, A Crafty Lass wins two blue ribbons for canned goods (and here we salute Heavy Table shooter Becca Dilley who took a red for pickled watermelon rinds), Emily wants advice about how to do a whole day at the Fair and live (here’s a hint: the Romans did it!), Bill Roehl raves up the Pot Roast Sundae, the Gedney pickle Fair story by Sue, and the homebrew winners report via MNBeer.
James Norton is editor and co-founder of the Heavy Table. He is also the co-author of a book about Minnesota sandwiches and the people who eat them, the co-author of a book about Wisconsin’s master cheesemakers, and a daily video blogger for CHOW. His latest book is a guide to the food and restaurants of Minneapolis and St. Paul called the Food Lovers’ Guide to the Twin Cities. Norton has written about food for Culture: The Word on Cheese, Salon, Gastronomica, Popular Science, Saveur.com, Minnesota Monthly, and City Pages (as a weekly restaurant reviewer).
