I love this. One of my favs.

totally awesome. though, if you're not from minnesota, it'll probably be kinda lame. the little chef bios are pretty cool, as are the little culture bios. even though everyone thinks of minnesota as being totally white and scandanavian.....which it kinda is.....there are a lot of different cultures in minnesota too.

I am really enjoying this cookbook. It is a great mixture so history, culture, recipes, and food essays. It follows the people of Minnesota, Native to recent immigrants. I think it was published a little too soon for East African cuisine to be included, so I would reccomend that if they reissue it. Of course I am a native Minnesotan, so I am a little biased towards the concept. Even so, I would be interested in reading similar books about other states and the food they have there. It was a fun way to learn a lot about culture through food.
