It takes a village to put on a party, as the Taste crew discovered in preparation for its 50th birthday dinner in celebration of the Star Tribune’s food section, which debuted on Oct. 1, 1969. We turned to the master chefs of the Twin Cities for the food (including the six Minnesota James Beard award-winners of Best Chef Midwest, together in the kitchen for the first time) and the American Swedish Institute for culinary coordination and lovely setting. The gathering celebrated our respect for good food, from restaurant chefs and home cooks.
