Crystal Grobe

Crystal Grobe is a Minnesota food writer who truly enjoys creating new dishes using fresh and local ingredients. Although she likes trying new restaurants for inspiration, the best dishes come from her own kitchen and she wants to share them with her readers. Crystal created Café Cyan four years ago as a way to share recipes and inspire others to try new foods. In 2009 she created a food blog for WCCO (a CBS Affiliate) named Bite of Minnesota, which focuses on local food in Minnesota and the surrounding area. Crystal loves Minnesota and its vibrant community of interactive and innovative people. She is constantly on the go in search of new foods, events, music, and friends. She lives in the south metro with her husband, Ryan, which gives them easy access to both the bustling cities and the local farms.
