Eat Local, a group of independently owned restaurants formerly known as the Twin Cities Originals, is bringing a popular culinary event back for its ninth year. Now called the Taste of Eat Local Minnesota (a name change from Taste of the TCO), the event will feature favorite dishes and new flavors from member restaurants gathered at TCF Bank Stadium on Thursday, July 24.
Bent over serving trays, eight culinary school chefs hurriedly filled their phyllo cups and topped their baguettes with avocado and gorgonzola, and even pineapple. As part of the Chopped-style competition during the Minneapolis ACF Chapter’s Taste of Art event, the students were competing for a share of $7,500 in scholarship money, with attendees voting for their favorites.
A first for farmers markets in the area, notes market manager Libby Wyrum, more than 30 Linden Hills vendors will offer wholesale purchasing and pricing by the case during the first two hours—7-9 a.m.—of the Sunday market. The aim is to connect chefs, caterers and grocery buyers with local food producers bringing in everything from heirloom vegetables, fruits and herbs to locally produced honey and spices.
