Tastebuds on Vacation

I read somewhere that to travel is to eat. More than just eating to not be hungry while we're away

From oysters to grits, local Omaha steak to fresh caught crawfish, some of most immersive cultural experiences have been at the table. There's also the added bonus of recreating those flavors at home and reliving those memories (how has it taken me this long to learn about sweet tea?!). And if you're visiting our home state, Minnesota, we've got the goods for you too! We have a great food scene here and we're working our way through it (and hitting tons of independent coffee shops too!).
