Minneapolis can cook!


The James Beard Foundation Awards have just come to a close, and while Minnesota didn’t take home as many awards this year as last, it still can claim a couple of winners.

In the category of Best Chef in the Midwest region, Isaac Becker won for his restaurant, 112 Eatery.

And on Friday, Amy Thielen won in the category of Cooking, Recipes, or Instruction for her work at the Minneapolis Star Tribune, including her articles “A Good Catch,” “Low-Tech Wonder,” and “From the Bean Patch: Plenty.”

Congrats to them both!
