Recreate State Fair Staples

Chef David Fhima is opening a new restaurant in downtown Minneapolis in late summer 2018. And in honor of the Minnesota State Fair, he used the Great Minnesota Get Together as inspiration for a couple dishes you can make at home.

Fhima’s Minneapolis is expected to open in September 2018.
