We all have some favorite "foodie finds" publications that you subscribe to or read.  I just came across "Heavy Table" www.heavytable.com. The Heavy Table is a Twin Cities-based magazine passionately telling the stories of food and drink - from roots to table - in the Upper Midwest.  Very exciting news that is going on in the Twin Cities area.
