We know it’s been on your calendar for months. It’s finally time to celebrate the 500 year anniversary of the Reinheitsgebot German Purity Law, a series of regulations limiting the ingredients in German beer. Enjoy a bratwurst and some German potato salad and the release of Schwarzbier- a German Lager with low bitterness and a hint of roast.
These rulers of the kitchen are taking stepping out into the spotlight. The Dame it! tasting event will feature some of Minnesota’s best female chefs including Carrie Summer, Lisa Carlson, Brenda Langton, Michelle Gayer, Jamie Malone, Kylene and Mel Gust of GYST, Anna Christoforide and Kim Bartmann. The event will raise funds for scholarships for women interested in a culinary career and Urban Roots, a youth gardening project.
