I grew up in Minnesota and the regional cuisine is something you can’t get anywhere else. In this cookbook, there are 150 fantastic recipes from some of the best chefs, farmers and foodies from Minnesota. The photographs are enough reason to purchase this book but the recipes are incredible and easy to understand. I tried a few recipes and can’t wait to try more. A few of my favorites include North Shore Fish Cakes and Tater Tot Nachos.

If you’re looking to add variety to your family’s diet whil
Thanks to, Teresa Marrone, and Storey Publishing for the advance PDF copy for my honest review. I totally enjoyed this one, liked it so much that I purchased it from

I just found way too many fish recipes that I wanted to try, along with beef, chicken, a few that you could even substitute pork with and some that looked really interesting to try.

Definitely will be trying many of them. I really liked how Teresa Marrone even listed different types of fish to substitute in

Three and a half stars.

Ah, Minnesota. Home of the hot dish. Being a Midwestern girl, I love learning recipes from my own neck of the woods. Minnesota is in my region, but ultimately isn't a place I associate with food. This book helped to teach me more.

The good outweighed the not-so-good in this book. I really liked the amount of information that was smooshed into it. There's all sorts of historical notes and facts about Minnesota. There's also some inviting information about places to visit, a

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley for an honest review.

I really liked the variety of recipes in this book but I hated how everything was organized. Instead of organizing recipes by dinner or dessert they do it by place and type? For example, "on the wild side" and "orchards and vines". I just didn't like it and found it hard to navigate.

This is like a travel guide and cookbook in one. Very homey, with a lot of fish recipes since that is what a lot of us do here. The recipes are familiar with a foodie flair but not too different to make them inaccessible. I grew up on lefse and walleye and wild rice. Scratch that. My whole food existence was built upon those three staples and continues to revolve around them to this day. This cookbook definitely respects that.

Easy read, and great for a new cook in Minnesota. Lots of great advice on local food and produce. I learned a lot about new types fish I hadn't cooked, mushrooms, seasonal berries, and where/when to find the food. ...more

A cookbook like many others. If you do not identify with the 10,000 lakes, probably there is nothing special about this book either.

I used to live in Minnesota, both in the north, along Lake Superior, and in the Twin Cities area. So, when I saw this book on NetGalley I was intrigued. Looking over it, I was surprised at how the book is dominated by fish recipes. While fishing is very popular in Minnesota, and any restaurant that served fish had to have walleye, I don't recall meals and diets being so dominated by it. In fact, the first section of this book is all fish recipes, which is nice as many fish books focus more on sa ...more

I've only been to Minnesota once, and didn't get to spend a lot of time there, but I did enjoy it. With Dishing Up Minnesota, I can make another visit in the comfort of my own home.

Chapters are divided by area and/or interest instead of course:

The Land of 10,000 Lakes
On the Wild Side
Co-ops, CSAs, and Farmers' Market Finds
Orchards and Vines
Pastures and Prairies
Multicultural Specialties
Fairs, Festivals, and Special Events
Resources: Featured Organizations

I was surprised at the array of dishes list

Each of our states offers specialties based upon where it sits regionally, the cultural background of its residents, and what foods are better supported. This cookbook by an author known for foraging and using wild food explores those differences and celebrates them. I also enjoyed the state facts that were included. The recipes are outlined using first a bit of information, the ingredient list and well written and easy to follow instructions. The photos used whether showing the dish or Minnesot ...more

A fantastic book that combines cuisine, culture, and travel. I'm slightly biased because MN is my home state, although I culturally identify myself as a Midwesterner due to my family's WI heritage and my four years of college in IA. Thus I particularly appreciated this book's reflection of MN's diversity. The well-known Scandinavian and German cuisines make appearances, but Marrone also includes the flavors and techniques brought to the table (pun terribly intended) by the Native American, Latin ...more

Dishing Up Minnesota by Teresa Marrone is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in early June.

Naturally, this cookbook has me busting with an immense amount of pride, not just because the location photos are sourced from places that I've visited and know well, but the recipes can be traced to a campfire, a bistro, glass jars in the dark corners of a family basement, and the long-hallowed vestiges of the ever-popular supperclub (insert bright white blinky lightbulbs here). Yes, those fancy topped to
I like regional cookbooks to see what is popular in a certain area.

In looking at Dishing Up Minnesota, I forgot it was the land of 10,000 lakes (some I know are swamps based on the size of the mosquitos – having lived there when I was younger) there are lots of fish recipes, but then there were a nice variety of ethnic recipes and other recipes using local goods.

Once again the photography was fantastic.
