The Duluth Grill Cookbook by Robert Lillegard and photography by Rolf Hagsberg can be purchased at the restaurant on 27th Avenue West. The book tells how they changed their direction of the restaurant to urban gardens, gardens on the roof, outdoor gardening at the restaurant, and buying locally. It is jam packed full of home made from scratch recipes used in the restaurant. For example bison pot roast, Jamia’s lasagna, wild rice burgers, roasted brussel sprouts, sweet potato sides, scotch eggs, red flannel hash, great smoothies, tasty salad dressings and much more. This is a one of a kind beautiful cookbook. I’d say even a coffee table cookbook. It sells for $29.95. www.duluthgrill.com/
