Cooking Minnesota Wild Rice with Andrew Zimmern || Food/Groups
As the world’s most common food staple, rice is rarely a celebrity on the plate by itself. Which is why for this episode of Food/Groups, we went to a place where it is. The Star of the North: Minnesota.
The Land of 10,000 Lakes is also the land of wild rice -- a naturally occurring aquatic grass that’s knocked, finished, and sold by Native Americans whose ancestors have crisscrossed these waters in canoes doing more or less the very same thing for generations. And while legit hand-picked wild rice can get expensive, it’s an edible through-line that connects Minnesota’s pristine past with its modern culinary future. Which, when you think about it, is kinda wild.
