Focus: Tyner Pond Farm

  Digging IN with Chris Baggott of Tyner Pond Farm By Ryan Puckett | August 23, 2013 One thing most people don’t know about Dig IN is that the festival IS NOT a fundraiser.

Sweet on Indiana Honey

My Indiana Food Memory: Indiana Honey By Rocky Walls | August 20, 2013 Pork tenderloins, corn on the cob, and honey! Wait, honey? Okay fine, so Indiana isn’t known for honey. In fact, honey is produced in every state in the U.S. and the top producing states are North and South Dakota – you knew […]

Affinity for Indiana Corn

  My Indiana Food Memory: Indiana Corn By Sara Croft | August 19, 2013 I grew up amidst the cornfields of Vigo County. The height of the stalks marked the beginning and end of summer. Seeing them everyday was a reminder of the recess from school and responsibilities. Even though those responsibilities now involve work […]

BFFs: Food and Beer

  A Beer Lover’s Guide to Dig IN By Jason Lee | August 18, 2013 I have to admit, I may be a little partial to beer. Ok, I’m very partial. I like wine, but in my opinion, beer is where it’s at! Every year Dig IN showcases some of the finest local food and […]

Dig IN & Uncork

  Dig IN & Uncork By Carla Jo Truex | August 15, 2013 Two things you need to know: Indiana makes world-renowned wine and I usually only get two glasses of vino out of one bottle. One is truth and the other a personal theory. You might be like me and have some questions about […]

Dig IN Gives Me Wings

  Dig IN Gives Me Wings By Meggie Dials | August 14, 2013 I am not a foodie. In fact, most of the time, I prefer to eat off the children’s menu at restaurants based on my unsophisticated palate. I grew up on Ortega Taco Nights, pizza casserole and tuna pasta. Sometimes, I go weeks […]

Hoosier Inspiration

  Hoosier INspiration By Sonja Overhiser | August 13, 2013 When I moved to Indiana, the last thing I cared about was food.

Formerly a Pork-a-Phobe

Confessions of a Gastronaut By Erin Day | August 12, 2013 I have a confession to make: I used to be a pork-a-phobe. Yes, one of the time-honored, classic Hoosier meats was not my favorite for a long time. Ok, I have always loved bacon, but for a long time, I had a distinct distaste […]

My Best Bite at Dig IN

  My Best Bite at Dig IN By Heather Tallman | August 9, 2013 Growing up I was not the most adventurous eater. Sure, I ate what my parents cooked and I rarely turned my nose up when served. Fast forward to my adult years and I can count on one hand the things I […]

Little Indiana Digs IN

Little Indiana Digs IN By Jessica Nunemaker | August 8, 2013  Hoosiers are known for a great, good love of home-style food, right? We pride ourselves on our farmers market produce. Our dinner tables fairly groan with staples like sweet corn, potatoes, and possibly gravy-covered anything. But did you know you can also fit “gourmet” […]

Gastronaut Confessional

Confessions of a Gastronaut By Andy Huston | August 7, 2013 When I watch Top Chef, two things happen.

My Indiana Food Memory

My Indiana Food Memory: The Homegrown Indiana Tomato By Ryan Puckett | August 1, 2013 “There’s nothing like a homegrown Indiana tomato.” At least that’s what my dad has been telling me since I was a kid.
