More Info

This presentation will cover the local food scene since the “early days” dating back to Rachel Carson and Frances Moore Lappe and taking us into the future with the work being done by our universities on sustainable, perennial crops such as Kernza (an intermediate wheat grass).

Beth Dooley has covered the local food scene in the Northern Heartland for thirty years: she writes for Mpls.St.Paul Magazine, the Taste section of the Minneapolis-St. Paul Star Tribune, and Heavy Table and appears regularly on KARE 11 (NBC) television and MPR Appetites with Tom Crann. She is author of Minnesota's Bounty: The Farmers Market Cookbook, The Northern Heartland Kitchen and coauthor with Lucia Watson of Savoring the Seasons of the Northern Heartland, among other books.

Dooley will also be catering the meal for this Discovery Dinner – come enjoy her delicious local food recipes!
