Minneapolis Melting Pot

Episode: CCETS-302H

Minnesota is called the "land of 10,000 lakes," but there's only one lake that Chuck is interested in...Lake Street in Minneapolis, home to the city's most delicious and diverse cuisine. His first stop is at Manny's Tortas where chef Manny Gonzalez makes what many believe are the best sandwiches in the whole city - piles of mouthwatering steak, onion, jalapeno, avocado, cheese, mushrooms, chipotle mayonnaise, and refried beans piled on top of buttered French bread. Next, Chuck samples the Japanese Fried Chicken at moto-i, the first sake brewery outside of Japan, where chef Omar Gillego invents fresh adaptations of Asian street food. Before visiting Craftsmen, Chuck and chef Ryan Swaim go ice fishing for the walleye they prepare along with sauteed mushrooms and potatoes in a cream sauce made from popcorn. Last, Chuck pays homage to the city's Scandinavian history with a stop at an iconic outpost, Ingebretsen's, where owner Steve Dahl explains how old-school favorites are made, like a flatbread called lefse and lutefisk cured with lye.
