I might be super late to the game with this one but I just discovered The Perennial Plate: http://www.theperennialplate.com/
Its a year-long project documenting local food in MN.
The rabbit and Thanksgiving episodes are particularly exciting. I work in the Cities as a freelance journalist and I have to say the collection of the episodes is a really amazing portrait of life in Minnesota.
This guy is a killer cook and they got to all corners of the state. Definitely worth the time to check it out if you haven't already.
