Update: The winning entry was from Lucia's -- a Dandelion honey panna cotta with honey florentine. Gigi's came in 2nd place and Restaurant Alma in 3rd. The prize for bee-ting the competition? The Beez Kneez will name a hive in Longfellow Gardens after the longtime uptown restaurant.
While the bees are feasting on dandelion nectar, we'll be sampling treats made from their dandelion honey, at the first Dandelion Honey Pastry Chef Challenge.
Chefs from all over the Twin Cities are set to compete in the event presented by the Beez Kneez on Thursday, April 10 at the Nicollet Island Pavillion. To top it all off, the night will be emceed by none other than R.T. Rybak and his local foods-loving other half, Megan O'Hara.More »
