When it starts its five-day run today, you’re probably not going to find deep fried bacon ice cream (made that one up) or cheese curds on a stick (had those two years ago at the Minnesota State Fair).
But what you will find is some pretty decent dining options. While it’s not haute cuisine, I’m happy to make a dinner of it once.
And it may even be twice so that I can get my fill of Indian food. That’s right, folks! Since last year, I have been looking forward to Rupa and Darshen Shah’s booth, where they will serve up Indian delicacies that are hard to find in Jackson.
The couple, who work for Terra Resort Group, used to own and operate a restaurant in India. They debuted their booth last year, serving samosas, a pastry filled with curry, peas and spices; chaat, a deep fried potato snack and lassi, a mango-flavored yogurt drink.
This year promises a similarly authentic menu with an Indian appetizer and rice dish, Rupa Shah said.
