Early summer is my favorite time in the Midwest. We’ve officially shaken off winter, and we're looking ahead to three months of warm weather, time at the lake, and locally grown produce. When strawberry season arrives, it feels like a promise of adventure ahead. I load up on berries at farmers' markets and order all the strawberry dishes and drinks I can.
“Midwesterner has been a wonderful addition to my weekly reading! As a lover of history and cooking both, I appreciate the way it’s brought so many little-known stories about Midwestern food out to where the rest of the world can appreciate the diversity and deliciousness of our region.”
