Growing up in the Upper Midwest, you get used to cold weather dishes – lots of casseroles and pot roasts and hot dish. The Twin Cities has the largest Scandinavian population in the U.S., which may be why Marcus Samuelsson opened an Aquavit there over a decade ago.  Scandinavian traditions run deep, and a nascent movement is underway – at least at one restaurant – to try to label the region, and its food, as the “North.”

Native Minnesotan Steve Dolinsky heads back to Minneapolis to talk to a couple of chefs, as well as the city’s long-time restaurant critic, about how the new generation of talent in the kitchen is simultaneously adapting traditional Swedish techniques, but also breaking new ground.

Thanksgiving can be tricky, at least in terms of what to drink
Bubbles? Big, expensive reds? Sharp, angular whites?


On this week’s show: some great advice, at several price points, for what to serve at Thanksgiving, or, better yet, what to bring to someone else’s house for the big feast. Steve and Rick talk with Craig Perman, the owner of a relatively small, personal wine shop, who only sells what he loves to drink himself.

On this week’s show, covering the food world has certainly changed over the past decade, especially if you’re in the magazine business. We’ll talk with Bon Appetit Magazine Editor-in-Chief, Adam Rapaport and Deputy Editor Andrew Knowlton as they are in Chicago for the annual Chicago Gourmet event. Rick and Steve ask what some of their challenges are producing a magazine and hear about how the magazine staff selects its annual Best New Restaurants issue.
