Last Chance for a Simple, Good, and Tasty Meal at the Craftsman

craftsmanIf you're still contemplating coming to the first-ever Simple, Good, and Tasty dinner at the Craftsman Restaurant in Minneapolis on April 14, now would be a really good time to commit. In short: we're running out of space! I couldn't be more thrilled about the number of people who've reserved a spot so far (BIG thank you to those who're coming!). Craftsman Chef Mike Phillips will discuss the local, sustainable foods he's prepared and where they come from, and he has created a special 3 course meal for us (including vegetarian options), with choices such as:

  • Salad of shaved cabbage, Northern Lights bleu cheese, beets, and dried cherry vinaigrette
  • Star Thrower lamb ragout with Riverbend Farms creamy polenta
  • Cinnamon sugar beignets with salted caramel ice cream
