When describing our cities, there are plenty of ways to approach a stranger. There is the Minnesota Nice standard: we can out-nice each other into a standstill at a four-way stop. We are friendly to a fault, just so long as you swear allegiance to the correct Ju(i)cy Lucy. Our 10,000 lakes are a source of pride and everyone has somewhere "up North" to visit on summer weekends. Kids are taught to ice skate before they can walk and we absolutely do not talk like those people in the movie Fargo. (Go bears!)
For us, we can't describe our state without including the flavors of Minnesota. Holidays smell like lefse. A fresh-caught walleye fish-fry is a holy occasion. And the steak dinner is king of meals in our land of bread and milk.
These are the icons of our dining industry, the foods that make us feel at home. But we also want to hear from you! What is the one dish you would use to introduce your Minnesota to the world? Please let us know in the comments!Read More
