The big specialty of Minnesota is Walleye (as far as I know), and I don't think you can get it where you are. Pretty much doesn't get shipped very far from the source.

Also wild rice, Gjetost and (horrors! ) Lutefisk.

Naturally, there was wild rice, which was prepared just about any way imaginable. My friend, Cedric Littlewolf, taught me how to pop it like popcorn. Really cool and tasty.

That sounds intresting. Please share.

"Digestive problems" can mean lots of things, and spicy food isn't necessarily going to make them flare up. Have you asked your friend specifically what her dietary restrictions are?

Dina, I know if I were visiting you I would rather sample some of YOUR recipes than have you make stuff I get at home all the time. You can likely modify any of your usual recipes so that they are OK for her tummy. (I think you need to make her your apple crostada)

Lye fish - sounds tasty (not)

From Wikipedia:

Quote:
Lutefisk (lutfisk) (pronounced [lʉːtəfɪsk] in Southern Norway, [lʉːtfɪsk] in Central and Northern Norway, Sweden and the Swedish-speaking areas in Finland (lipeškala in Finnish)) is a traditional dish of the Nordic countries made from stockfish (air-dried whitefish) or dried/salted whitefish (klippfisk) and soda lye (lut). Its name literally means "lye fish", because it is made with caustic soda or potash lye.
Hey, that pronunciation guide is a big help, no?

Whaddaya mean, no?

Lutefisk and Lefsa are traditional Minnesotan dishes according to my Norwegian aunt
