To conceptualize this dish, I incorporated two of the same ingredients offered chefs in the entree round and one ingredient from the dessert round. For more or less winging it, I was pleasantly surprised how well the flavors came together. I've never cooked with any of the three ingredients before—papaya, yucca root or pork rinds. With the help of my fellow Mitt DeLynn Howard in the Brainerd Dispatch kitchen, we brought this surprisingly satisfying, Minced-inspired dish to life.play button

Sure, with the internet and social media, certain small town history gets recorded in other places, but not so thoroughly as one would find in an official publication. Years from now the bound copies of the PineandLakes Echo Journal will remain one of the most reliable historical records for Pine River and Pequot Lakes out there, maybe one of the only records. Such is the case for Pine River 75 years ago as well.
