Meet the TC Taste Bloggers

Minnesota Monthly’s TC Taste blog discusses restaurant and dining trends, reviews, home cooking, breaking news, and generally brings the plate to the page.

 
Rachel Hutton
Rachel Hutton is Minnesota Monthly's editor in chief. In the course of reporting on local agriculture and dining, she's donned both coveralls (to visit hog barns) and a spandex superhero uniform (to deliver pizza). Her work has been featured in the Best Food Writing series.
 
 
Mary Subialka


Mary Subialka is senior editor of Real Food and Drinks magazines, covering the flavorful world of food, wine, and spirits. She rarely meets a chicken she doesn’t like, and hopes that her preschool-age son, who used to eat beets and Indian food, will one day again think of real food as more than a means to a treat—and later share this with his baby brother.

 
Joy Estelle Summers

Joy Summers honed her love of food in the wilds of Northern Minnesota where she learned to cook with bacon grease, boil down maple sap for syrup and braise road-kill pheasant in heavy cream. She is the editor of Eater Minneapolis and co-critic for Minnesota Monthly's Taste section along with Jason DeRusha. When not eating, writing or writing about eating, she lives in St. Paul with her husband and two young children.
