As Seen In...Minneapolis

My hometown, and a city on an epic rise to the level of Great American Food City, has a lot on its plate. It its quest to be the epicenter of New Nordic cuisine, it will host Chef Magnus Nilsson of the world-renowned Fäviken in his U.S. tour this May for a week at our American Swedish Institute. Additionally, it will welcome the International Foodservice Editorial Council’s 60th annual meeting in October 2016 at Radisson Blu; and in 2018, will welcome football fans at Super Bowl 52 in the new US Bank Stadium (a ‘little known’ chef and resident named Andrew Zimmern is currently working with Aramark on the new menu for the stadium, opening this summer). Breweries and micro-distilleries are cropping up in great numbers and the city just welcomed the opening of the first vegan butcher shop in the U.S. —Kathleen Stoehr
