No matter what else is going on in the world, people care about their food, wine, and beer—and most likely always will. And we are lucky to have two of the best food editors in the 'biz writing for Minnesota Monthly magazine—Jason DeRusha and Joy Summers—sharing humorous, honest, and valuable "knowledgeable-but-not-pretentious" food critic insight with our readers (all while HAVING FUN). We recently asked the dynamic duo to share the food, wine, or beer they are most excited about sampling at this year’s Minnesota Monthly Food & Wine Experience March 5 and 6 inside Target Field.

Ready for it? Drum roll, please ... and here are their top choices: 


• Bogart's Doughnut Co.  


• Cosmos - Loew's Hotel  


• Fulton Brewing Company       


• Marieke Gouda/Hollands Family Farm


• Swedish Crown Bakery


• True Stone Coffee


• Washington Wine Commission         



• Bronco Wine Company


• Café Latte


• Chateau Ste. Michelle


• Fulton Brewing


• Legacy Chocolates


• Minnesota Pork Board


• Opolo Vineyards


• Seven Sundays



Now you can make the most of your sipping and sampling by arriving at the show with a specific plan of where you want to go and what you want to try—starting with Jason and Joy's picks.
