Tasting the Midwest with Beth Dooley, author of In Winter's Kitchen

  • Found Kitchen and Social House 1631 Chicago Avenue Evanston, IL, 60201 United States

While farm-to-table has become something of a catch-phrase in foodie circles, what does it actually mean when you live in a tough climate like the Upper Midwest? That's a question Minnesota food writer Beth Dooley has spent the past 35 years exploring, getting to know foods like wild rice, cranberries, potatoes, sweet potatoes, cheese and butter, as well as the farmers who grow them, the policies that govern production, and the cultures in which they have special meaning. Tickets for this special event, at which Beth discusses her book In Winter's Kitchen: Growing Roots and Breaking Bread in the Northern Heartland, which the Wall Street Journal calls "essential reading", include one paperback copy of the book, plus a light menu of nibbles and two signature cocktails specially created for the event by Found's chef (and Minneapolis native) Nicole Pederson. Tickets are $55 + service fee and can be bought here.
