The Minnesota Table: Recipes for Savoring Local Food throughout the Year is a year-round companion for those who want to explore Minnesota-grown and -produced foods. Beginning with asparagus sprouts in early spring and following the calendar year, Shelley Holl and B. J. Carpenter reflect on what they discovered in their travels across the state, show the foods they made, photographed and ate, give suggestions for monthly menus, and present recipes and tips for foods of the season while sharing from the best growers, producers and purveyors in Minnesota. Meet gardening nuns and artisan farmers who breathe color and warmth into the argument for sustainable agriculture; try new twists on classic and regional recipes that take the pure flavors of fresh, local ingredients to new heights; hunt morels, pick blueberries, winnow wild rice and come nose-to-nose with yaks, elk and bison in this beautifully illustrated collection of travel stories, recipes and menu ideas that follow Minnesota’s growing season.
Shelley Holl is a writer and visual artist who is a former travel columnist for the award-winning New Orleans’ Times-Picayune newspaper and has written travel features for the Minneapolis Star Tribune Newspaper. She is the author of Louisiana Dayride: 52 Short Trips from New Orleans, University Press of Mississippi, 1995 and Waterbourne Witness: Elegies for My New Orleans, Lulu Press, 2008.
B. J. Carpenter developed the recipes for The Minnesota Table and is a professionally trained chef; cooking instructor; certified dietary manager; and freelance food writer. She grew up on Minnesota’s food-rich Iron Range where she spent many hours in the kitchens of her immigrant grandparents.
