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.

  1. Hungry Turtle

    The Hungry Turtle Institute is delighted to be a sponsor of the Nosh event curated by chef Sherman. We’re a non-profit promoting local food from small, sustainable farms. We’re located in the amazing Amery Food Hub building in downtown Amery, WI, along with the Farm Table restaurant (which will be preparing the food served at our table) and the Hungry Turtle Farmers’ Co-op.

    We’re looking forward to meeting everyone at the Nosh event on Feb 19, and we invite you all to come out and visit us in Amery. Big things are happening in the beautiful countryside of NW Wisconsin!
