Book Review: Dishing Up Minnesota: 150 Recipes from the Land of 10,000 Lakes by Teresa Marrone
Title: Dishing Up Minnesota: 150 Recipes from the Land of 10,000 Lakes
Author: Teresa Marrone
Publisher: Storey Publishing, LLC
Release: June 28, 2016
NetGalley: These 150 mouthwatering recipes, contributed by some of Minnesota’s best chefs, farmers, and foragers and accompanied by gorgeous photography, celebrate the state’s outstanding and unique cuisine. You’ll find dishes featuring fish from the lakes as well as morels and chanterelles, wild blueberries, wild game, beef and bison, orchard fruits, berries, dairy products, and much more. There are recipes inspired by German, Scandinavian, East Asian, and African traditions, as well as dishes from fairs and food trucks.
Mine: I like regional cookbooks to see what is popular in a certain area.
In looking at Dishing Up Minnesota, I forgot it was the land of 10,000 lakes (some I know are swamps based on the size of the mosquitos – having lived there when I was younger) there are lots of fish recipes, but then there were a nice variety of ethnic recipes and other recipes using local goods.
Once again the photography was fantastic.
My favorites dished were: Wild Cherry Jellym Thai Peanut Caramel Popcorn; Honey Pecan Pie; Classic Pound Cake with Cardamom
