Now that’s some super muesli

November 19th, 2015

Fergus Falls couple introduces line of healthy oatmeals, trail mix


Who said muesli couldn’t be healthy and delicious at the same time?

Certainly not Elisha and Tim Griffin, who recently started Superior Wholesome Oats Co., a breakfast food company specializing in healthy, flavorful oatmeal and trail mix.

“We create mueslis, trail mix and (eventually) granolas that keep you going,” said Elisha Griffin, “simple foods that can be comforting, nourishing and satisfying.”

Changing the face of the restaurant industry

November 12th, 2015

There is a movement afoot in several major restaurant cities around the country, led by some of our most prominent restaurateurs, to get rid of tipping, thus leveling the financial playing field between the front and back of the house. This is a bold and risky move that will change the face of fine dining and upscale casual as well. Some say it is long overdue.

I have been following this conversation for a while, and now Danny Meyer, of the Union Square Hospitality Group and owner of 13…

Soup’s on at Dorothy Day

November 11th, 2015

r

How would you feel about having the opportunity not only to fill up with delicious soup but also to directly contribute to a vision of social justice started all the way back in the 1930s? You can do exactly that by attending the soup supper and raffle at St. Joseph’s Church in Moorhead, put on by the Dorothy Day House of Hospitality. For at least a decade, they have been using the proceeds from this event, along with other charitable donations, to help the homeless of the…

A look at new restaurants Porter Creek and Barbacoa

November 4th, 2015

For some reason I have always thought of West Fargo as anything west of I-29, don’t ask me why, it just felt right. In actuality West Fargo is much further out, but the boundary is quite confusing the further west and south you travel. Every time I head out that way I am amazed at the growth. Apartment complexes are popping up all over the place and with that more retail shops and restaurants: good restaurants, not just your typical chains, and there is no shortage of those.

So the…

The flavors to savor: Autumn’s bounty

October 21st, 2015


With the rusty, brown shades of autumn leaves sprinkled with touches of red and yellow, autumn is upon us. Bright orange pumpkins, pale yellow butternut squash and the deep green hues of buttercup & acorn squashes paint the farm-stands and grocery stores alike. Gone are the rich, red, lush tomatoes, hand-picked from local farms, being replaced by a stunning array of crisp, crunchy, apples and pears. A real bounty of opportunity, time for apple cider, pies, cobblers, warming soups and…

GOING HOG WILD

October 2nd, 2015

Swine isn’t a word we use in our everyday dialogue, well unless you are a pig farmer. It is one of those words if you say it ten times really quickly is becomes non-seneschal. By definition the term swine is a contemptible person, a brutal sensual person or any stout, cloven-hoofed artiodactyl, aka pig. And this past Sunday it was all about the noble hog and craft beer at the inaugural Pig and The Pint event. Hosted by Jade Presents and sponsored by Bernie’s Liquors, The North…

Everest Tikka House: a taste of India and Nepal in Moorhead

September 24th, 2015

By John Showalter

Tucked away in the northeast corner of the Moorhead Center Mall, Everest Tikka House opened on May 14 by owner Saru Pokharem. One has to realize that India is a gigantic subcontinent with a vast variety of different cultures (and therefore cuisines). The Indian diaspora has had a huge influence all over South Asia, including in Saru and her main chef’s homeland of Nepal, home of the famous spiritual refuge Kathmandu and the daunting Mount Everest, whose stony façade…
