‘I Hart Food’ Travels to Minneapolis, Minnesota
This week, on I Hart Food, we are introduced to the local food of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Their food stems from their cold winter days with a lot of Irish and German roots, as their dishes usually combine something cheesy with something starchy.
The iconic Minnesota dish is a hot dish or what’s known as a casserole everywhere else. It’s basically ground meat, some veggies, some type of creamy sauce, and some type of starch on top, topping it off with tater tots The first restaurant host Hannah Hart takes us to is aptly called, Haute Food, where they turn Minnesotan comfort food into fine dining through the art of deconstruction and some imagination. At this restaurant, their interpretation of a hot dish is made with short ribs, fresh green beans (as opposed to frozen or canned ones), and the tater tots that oozes out soft and creamy potato goodness.
The second restaurant Hart stops at Cook St. Paul, where they create dishes influenced by Korean food. At Cook St. Paul, their mac and cheese is made with a sauce made of the essentials with the added bonus of kimchi which surprisingly makes the dish seem like it’s creamier and more dairy-forward but really isn’t.What I thought looked the best at this restaurant was their signature bibimbap, a Korean comfort dish which is traditionally a bowl of rice topped with meat, veggies, and a runny egg. Here, they have a fried crispy rice ball, crunchy veggies mixed with the fermented funkiness of kimchi with Korean short ribs and of course, a poached egg.
Host and YouTuber, Hannah Hart went around trying even more delicious food in the homey city of Minneapolis like a peanut butter and kimchi sandwich at Cook St. Paul, jerk chicken Jamaican-inspired restaurant called Pimento, or best-selling French toast bites at the Minnesota state fair.
