Where Chef Lisa Hanson of Mona likes to eat (Mona’s fregola pictured above; here’s our Mona review). Rachel interviews Stephanie Ratanas, Dogwood’s Director of Coffee, to learn about how coffee can taste like “baked blueberries” (and so forth). A look at Canal Park Brewing in Duluth, and a letter from that city’s mayor welcoming the Growler to town. A taste of 3 Sheeps Brewing Co. from Kiel, WI. Research concludes that cheese made from animals that are pasture-grazed really does taste different. And WACSO sketches Crossroads Deli.
