When we first moved to Minnesota in 1992, one of the great discoveries was Taste of Minnesota, which at the time was held on the grounds of the state Capitol. I can’t imagine a better setting for the fireworks than the Minnesota Capitol. The food was provided by some of the finer restaurants in the region.
Fast forward. The Taste is under new ownership and it’s now held on Harriet Island, but has time passed the Taste of Minnesota by?
Greg Bossany of Elk River sent us his review this morning:
I went to the real taste of minn. some 20 years ago. There was real food products from many places. This year was a bad carnival version of what i was expecting. The worst part was two of the things i had were not even cooked all the way. If it wasn’t for the music i would call this a total flop from what it used to be!!!!!
The Star Tribune’s review of Taste echoed Greg’s, describing it as “warmed over.”
We await your review.
