Chef Shack Preview
Damn, it's cold outside, which means it's a great time to start thinking about summer. I'm really looking forward to the reappearance of Chef Shack, which serves up some of the Twin Cities’ best street food. I was lucky enough to catch Lisa Carlson and Carrie Summer, the chef and pastry chef from Spoonriver, test-driving the Chef Shack at the St. Paul Winter Carnival a few weeks ago. The trailer was topped with a hula-hooping go-go dancer and was blasting music to lure parade goers to gourmet takeout fare, including pulled pork sandwiches, vegetarian chili, chocolate mousse, torched-to-order creme brulee, and those awesome cardamom-spiced mini-doughnuts Carlson and Summer were selling last summer at the Mill City Farmers Market (which is where they plan to park the Chef Shack this summer, so stay tuned…)
