Hot Dish Unveiled and Morning Roundup

Travail gets a Strib spotlight as part of the paper’s Great Chefs series; Nation’s Restaurant News profiles Culver’s; a wedding cheese cake (or: a cake of cheeses); details on the 2012 World Championship Cheese Contest in Madison; some complaints about the sale of Crispin Cider to Miller; and HauteDish can’t be thrilled that “the North American division of SSP, the leading operator of food and beverage brands in travel locations worldwide, is proud to announce the introduction of its restaurant, Hot Dish, to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.” “Bacon wrapped tater tots tucked into bleu cheese bechamel sauce” seem like a particularly calculated steal. Also: the Land Stewardship Project’s 2012 Twin Cities, Minnesota & Western Wisconsin Region CSA Farm Directory is now available for online perusal.
