Welcome to Foodie File, mspmag.com’s new food and restaurant blog. As you might have noticed, mspmag.com is arguably (perhaps inarguably) the most comprehensive website devoted to food and eating out in the Twin Cities. We’ve spent most of the winter dreaming up new ways to offer you more, and those additions are rolling out this month.
Foodie File aims to be a one-stop shop for the Twin Cities foodie. There’ll be at least two original posts each week from myself and longtime local food writer and restaurant insider Stephanie March, who now helms our voluminous Twin Cities Restaurant Guide. It could be something about the arrival of fiddlehead ferns in the markets and a link to a recipe or restaurant where you can find them. It could be gossip from the local restaurant biz (Is Thom Pham serious about opening three new restaurants this year, or merely suicidal?). Or it could be commentary on last night’s Hell’s Kitchen or Top Chef. Now and then, other members of the deepest food bench in town will post as well. Your comments and responses will be welcome across the board.
We’ll also use Foodie File to announce and link to fresh food content elsewhere on the site. It might be a restaurant review by Peter Lilienthal or Beth Dooley, a First Impressions visit to a brand new restaurant, a Second Helping mini review of an existing restaurant, Bill Coy’s monthly Wine Line, super chef Steven Brown’s Frugal Gourmet, or a video from Andrew Zimmern.
