1. Roasters Showcase and Brewers Cup

    On October 20th from 6:00pm to 9:00pm, The Lynhall will be hosting a Roasters Showcase and Brewers Cup in The Linney Studio. Stop by and hear from several local roasters on their approach to roasting and what got them into coffee, and enjoy samples from Cat & Cloud, Spyhouse, Bootstrap, Folly, and Dogwood. Following the showcase, local baristas will be squaring off in a by-the-cup brewing competition where baristas will pick their chosen brew method—all using the same coffee—and be judged by the roasters. Cash prizes and cool swag go to the top three!
    This event is open to the public. Admission is $10 and gets you samples from all the roasters. Local craft beer will be served as well. All proceeds will be donated to the Long Table Fund, which provides mission-specific educational opportunities and increased access to crisis mental health care for members of the restaurant industry.
    Look forward to seeing you there!

    About Alan Page

    Alan C. Page was born August 7, 1945, in Canton, Ohio. He graduated from Canton Central Catholic High School in 1963, and received his B.A. in political science from the University of Notre Dame in 1967 and his J.D. from the University of Minnesota Law School in 1978.

    After graduating from law school, Alan Page worked as an attorney for a law firm in Minneapolis, then served seven years as an attorney in the office of the Minnesota Attorney General.

    He sought election to the Minnesota Supreme Court in 1992 and won, becoming the first African American on the court and one of the few associate justices ever to join the court initially through election, rather than appointment by the governor. When Justice Page was reelected in 1998, he became the biggest vote-getter in Minnesota history. He was reelected in 2004 and 2010 and served until he reached the mandatory retirement age of 70 in 2015.

    Law was Alan Page’s second career; he was first known for his skills in football both in college and in the NFL. At Notre Dame, Alan Page led the school’s storied football program to the 1966 national championship, and in 1993 he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.

    Alan Page was a first-round draft choice of the Minnesota Vikings in 1967 and he played for the Vikings until 1978. The last three years of his football career were with the Chicago Bears, 1978–1981. During his career, Alan Page played in 218 consecutive games, earning All-Pro honors six times, and was voted to nine consecutive Pro Bowls. In 1971 he was named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player, becoming only the second defensive player in history to be named MVP. In 1988 Alan Page was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

    Also in 1988, Justice Page and his wife Diane founded the Page Education Foundation, which assists Minnesota students of color in their pursuit of post-secondary education. To date, the foundation has awarded $14 million in grants to 6,750 students.

    Justice Page and his daughter, Kamie Page, have written three children’s picture books, The Invisible You (2014), Alan and His Perfectly Pointy Impossibly Perpendicular Pinky (2013), and Grandpa Alan’s Sugar Shack (2017).

    About Lynne Rossetto Kasper

    Lynne Rossetto Kasper recently retired from 22 years as co-creator and host of American Public Media’s The Splendid Table®. This ended her nearly 50-year career as a food writer, teacher, speaker on her duel loves of food history and how food is evolving in our lives today, and the unexpected finale as a broadcaster.

    In 1994 producer Sally Swift approached Lynne about doing a different sort of radio show on food. Like minds melded. Both saw food and cooking as far broader and deeper than solely a recipe. In 1995 Minnesota Public Radio aired The Splendid Table’s first broadcast.

    Listening week to week you’d hear a physicist talk about the connection between a cappuccino, the universe, and a Styrofoam cup. Francis Lam might be sharing his recipe for Weapons Grade Ratatouille. Anthony Bourdain, in his usual low-key style, would be laying out what would happen to American restaurants if all Mexican workers disappeared. Dr. Marion Nestle could be explaining why we should care about the Farm Bill.

    Lynne might be talking about the pros and cons of buying local, sustainable farming and whether organic food is worth the money. She could be revealing the three simple tools that automatically make us better cooks, and perhaps the art of hunting and gathering instead of cooking.

    Back to the beginning: In 1969, in New York Lynne never imagined a career in food. Yes, she and her husband, Frank, were cooking monthly Chinese banquets for friends, obsessively researching each dish. That led to teaching Chinese cooking (and a vivid understanding of how little she knew), which led to her fascination with nearly every dimension of food. In turn that became the career Lynne never expected.

    Constant learning over the years came from chefs needing a kitchen slave, the old time butcher who taught her how to cut and age meat, generous home cooks, the innovators rethinking how food works, scientists, and academics. The culmination was a 10-year odyssey in a little known region of northern Italy, Emilia-Romagna.

    Emilia-Romagna’s terrior dictated that this was the only place where Parmigiano Reggiano could be made, as well as the true balsamic vinegar, Parma ham and stunning hand-made pastas. The question was, “Why this food in this place?” The answers became a 10-year adventure.

    So Lynne’s first book became The Splendid Table: Recipes from Emilia-Romagna, the Heartland of Northern Italian Food. It was the first book to win both the James Beard and Julia Child/IACP Book of the Year Awards. It was followed by three more books, two of which were co-authored with producer Sally Swift.

    Often we can’t imagine the future and perhaps it’s best that way.
    A favorite quote from Steve Hoffman: “She has a tomato variety named after her, which is, appropriately, “intensely sweet, deep, and complex.”
