the buzz





The North Star State is wedged between the Dakotas and Wisconsin, directly above Iowa. Minnesota shares a long border with Canada and is touched on to the northeast by Lake Superior. More than half of Minnesota’s population live in the greater Twin Cities metropolitan area of Minneapolis and St. Paul, leaving much of the state open to agriculture, prairie land, forests, and of course many, many lakes. In a land of 10,000 lakes, you can be sure that fishing is a major sport. The walleye is the official state fish of Minnesota; anglers also fish for bass, trout, pike, and muskies. Fishing is a year-round activity. In winter, intrepid anglers open holes in the ice and keep on fishing. Along the shores of Minnesota lakes, Native Americans once gathered wild rice (which is not really rice at all, but the seeds of a wild grass). Today wild rice is the official grain of the state of Minnesota – it makes a sensational side dish for fresh-caught fish or wild duck.

About me:
I have been involved in the food industry for over 31 years. I love cooking, and to try new things is wonderful. I read cookbooks like a novel, and try recipes that are different and unusual. Living in Fiji introduced me to totally new fruits and vegetables, and a 360 degree change of cooking. I love the challenge!

Way too much seasoning mix. Might be ok if you cut back in half.
