Mark your calendars for the 17th annual Minnesota Cooks™ Day at the Minnesota State Fair, scheduled for Sunday, Aug. 25 at Dan Patch Park. This is the premier event of Minnesota Farmers Union’s local foods education and outreach program. Minnesota Cooks demonstrates the economic value-added agriculture that benefits some farmers who produce locally grown food.
Join our hosts for the day, Mary Lahammer of TPT Twin Cities Public Television and Stephanie March and Stephanie Hansen of The Weekly Dish as we sample farm-fresh foods from farmers and chefs throughout the state of Minnesota and interact with celebrity tasters on stage as they discuss the importance of food and agriculture to all Minnesotans.
Keeping us entertained between shows are The Home Fires, an Americana duo.
We would like to thank our program sponsors: Farmers Union Insurance Agency, Farmers Union Industries and Minnesota Grown.
