Food & Drink

Does the idea of being paid to try products and offer your opinion sound exciting?

In 2011, Mark Largent set out to create a cheese curd for the food service industry that would be “Minnesota-Wisconsin” quality. A Wisconsin native familiar with the Minnesota State Fair’s curds, Largent wanted to make it possible for restaurants to offer curds as good as the ones at the fair.

Here are three suggestions from Sid’s Discount Liquors, all with hints of fall flavor, that are great for this time of year.

If you’re looking for a way to spice things up this fall, try this cocktail suggestion by Tim Martin, wine manager at Sid’s Discount Liquor. It’s the perfect drink for a crisp, cool day.

You’ll find many fall favorites available when you step into a Lunds & Byerlys this time of year, such as pumpkins, apple cider and a variety of festive bakery items for Halloween.

Haskell’s John Slattery and Patrick Chapman recommend these drinks for September:
 
The Gardener Russian River Pinot Noir 
This wine has a fruity flavor and is aged in French Oak barrels for 10 months.
 

Two Pony Gardens is a green floral oasis that features the tranquility of the countryside, but is actually no further than 15 minutes west of Plymouth in Long Lake.

Come and get it ChuckWagon style. Plymouth-based ChuckWagon Catering puts out a spread worthy of any occasion.

Chain sandwich shops are a common find in the Twin Cities. But Potbelly Sandwich Shop has set itself apart with an emphasis on live music since the first shop opened in Chicago in 1977.
 

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Forgot to make a reservation for brunch? Skip the long wait at the restaurant, get the kids in the kitchen and prepare brunch yourself. Making brunch at home may sound stressful, but it can actually be easy and fun.
