I grew up in Minnesota and the regional cuisine is something you can’t get anywhere else. In this cookbook, there are 150 fantastic recipes from some of the best chefs, farmers and foodies from Minnesota. The photographs are enough reason to purchase this book but the recipes are incredible and easy to understand. I tried a few recipes and can’t wait to try more. A few of my favorites include North Shore Fish Cakes and Tater Tot Nachos.
If you’re looking to add variety to your family’s diet while maintaining healthy eating, you’ll love Dishing Up Minnesota. I highly recommend it!
