‘Bizarre Foods’ host Andrew Zimmern to perform at MinnRoast 2017

The Travel Channel
Andrew Zimmern

For our 10th anniversary variety show, MinnPost is proud to announce that three-time James Beard Award-winner Andrew Zimmern will be joining the cast. Rumor has it that the Travel Channel host and former executive chef of Un Deux Trois will be showing off one of his lesser-known talents: singing.

MinnRoast has become a highlight of the Minnesota political calendar, bringing policymakers, entertainers and journalists together to poke fun at one another and the state we all love in songs, skits, videos, and monologues.

Joining Zimmern this year will be Gov. Mark Dayton, Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken, Rep. Tom Emmer, singer/songwriter PaviElle French, “Almanac” reporter Mary Lahammer, the Twin Cities Gay Men’s Chorus and many more.
