Since 1996 French Meadow Bakery & Café has earned a loyal following among Minnesota State Fair-goers by offering natural, unique food options that are also deliciously indulgent. This year we step up the game with our newest creation, Earth Wings® , as a featured new food on our fair menu.
Already a hit appetizer at our Minneapolis and St. Paul flagship restaurants, Earth Wings® are made with fresh cauliflower pieces (“wings”), dipped in our signature seasoned batter, deep-fried to perfection, and smothered in organic sesame BBQ sauce. The savory, meaty texture will satisfy even dedicated meat lovers, yet they are both vegan and gluten-free. They go perfectly with our Infused Cucumber Iced Lemonade – made with Minnesota-grown cucumbers and Meyer lemons -- a refreshing fan favorite over the last few years.
French Meadow also is offering State Fair visitors a Gluten-Free Rustic Sandwiches, created to further deliver on our commitment to offer delicious gluten-free options.
Chef Samantha Jensen brings out brilliant specials this February with something for everyone.
