Welcome to the March 2023 Issue

March 2023 Edina Magazine

As a kid, I wasn’t a very adventurous eater. Like many children, I loved the simple things, like macaroni and cheese and peanut butter sandwiches. I’m happy to report that my palate has expanded since then. Today, some of my favorite foods are those I wouldn’t have dreamed of touching as a child: Thai coconut curry, chicken tinga tacos, seared lamb and oh-so-much kale.

As my palate has expanded, I’ve also grown a love and appreciation for learning about food—how to cook on the fly and what flavors go together, yes, but also where different dishes originate and the cultural traditions surrounding food. All of this has made putting together our spring food-themed issue quite a delight.

Through the pages of this issue, I’ve learned more about how to pair food and wine (page 10) and where to shop locally for high-quality, grass-fed beef. But I also got to meet some of the people (and cattle) behind local food brands and restaurants—the Hinnenkamps of Clo-Clo Vegan Foods and Lyndsey Jacques of Bojae’s, to name just a few. Oh, and did I mention the iconic Gavin Kaysen, who just so happens to be an Edina resident?

It’s a delicious issue that you might just devour in one sitting—while also creating a menu of what to eat and drink over the next month. Bon appétit!
