Description
 
After years of living in New York City, Mae Jean Adams brought her passion for local foods and culinary art to the Black Hills of South Dakota in the fall of 1996. Channeling her NYC training,  she opened The Corn Exchange Restaurant, which aspired to create an awareness for local foods and, in her words, "save middle America from McDonalds.” The Corn Exchange Cookbook features tried and true recipes from days of the Corn Exchange restaurant, plus tales of her journey from 90’s NYC back to her roots on the great plains. Her recipes garnered her praise from Gourmet Magazine, earning her a reputation as a pioneer of the locavore movement. Mae Jean, aka MJ, makes her COOK debut this March with a menu that kicks off with mini Black Hills buffalo empanadas with chimichurri, followed by roasted red pepper and fennel soup; smoked trout on a scallion-corn pancake topped with cucumber raita; pan roasted quail seasoned with cinnamon salt topped with spicy tomato-lemon jam and served with a blue cheese potato cake; and nutmeg cake with pear, cranberry and black pepper compote and creme chantilly. Each guest will receive a copy of “The Corn Exchange Cookbook.”
