Celebrity Twin Cities Chef…

While there are many with this title these days from our great neighboring cities…there are only a couple I consider, The Real Deal.  And, my friend, Chef Tyge Nelson, is truly one of them.  The kid has produced some of THE best food I’ve had in the Twin Cities, let alone the U.S.   Seriously.  Do we have a new James Beard nominee on our hands?  That’s my prediction!

2rn0120In today’s Star Tribune ‘Taste’ section Chef Tyge is featured for his new joint, The Inn.  I can hardly wait to get there!  Check out what the Trib had to say.

For more fun with Chef Tyge…come check out our class at Cooks of Crocus Hill on Feb 18th!  Sign up today for one killer food & wine duo.

“Tapas with Leslee & Chef Tyge” – 2/18/2011

Cooks of Crocus Hill – Grand Avenue – St Paul, MN

These two are no strangers.  Teaching sold out classes at Cooks is old hat for these two culinary pals!  So, get ready to get your small plate on! Having honed his craft in the culinary cubbies of La Belle Vie and Solera, Chef Tyge now heads up the new restaurant kitchen of The Inn, downtown Minneapolis. He and Leslee, Cooks’ resident sommelier, will bring you a menu of tapas and wine combos sure to fight off the winter chill and get your blood boilin’.

Menu:  Roasted Beet Salad with Bitter Greens, Sesame and Yogurt; Olive Oil-Poached “Salt Cod” with Romesco, Preserved Lemon and Clams; Braised Beef Short Ribs with Truffle, Farina and Brussels Sprouts; Sherry-Poached Dried Fruit with Crème Fraîche Ice Cream and Almond Lace Tuile.

These culinary classes are a huge success at Cooks. If you’re wanting to sign up for one of them, please do so early.  We don’t want you to be left out in the cold while everyone else in MN enjoys these hot culinary classes. Please call Cooks @ 651.228.1333 to reserve your seat today!

Chef Tyge and Sommelier Leslee, old pals with always a new vision on food and wine!  These two love to heat it up at Cooks when they get together.  Surely one Twin Cities wine class that will not only have you lovin’ the pairings but also having you laughing from the crazy banter they create.  Twin Cities own, Chef and Sommelier Pairings – try one, you might like it!

  • Leslee is the most approachable sommelier we have ever met. She is a walking wine library yet still makes the whole wine experience very fun, accessible and interesting. She has helped us craft our wines, tweak our brand, and develop a commercial strategy. There isn’t one aspect of the wine industry that Leslee doesn’t tackle and excel at. Cheers to our fabulous friend Leslee! Teresa & Eugenio Meschini, Owners
