Minnesota Eats Out is a virtual romp through the state's dining spots, from early health resorts to Prohibition-era speakeasies to A&W drive-ins, illustrated with over one thousand photographs, postcards, menus, matchbooks, and collectible dishes. In eleven chapters divided by type of eatery, Kathryn Strand Koutsky and Linda Koutsky narrate the history of dining in the North Star State, highlighting innovative foods, cutting-edge graphic design, and inspired restaurant architecture, along with anecdotes about beloved restaurants remembered through the decades. Accompanying this history is a collection of recipes for dishes made famous through the years, like the pioneers' Indian Pudding and old favorites from Eibner's Bakery in New Ulm or Ruttger's Resort in Brainerd. Eleanor Ostman revised these recipes for preparation in modern kitchens. Embellished with historic photographs, collectible tableware, and restaurant ephemera, the recipes invite today's readers to re-create cherished flavor memories.
