Annual Pitchfork Fondue Steak Fry


Pictured here in a parody of Grant Wood’s iconic 1930 painting ‘American Gothic’ are Roger and Jo Norman, co-chairs of the upcoming Pitchfork Fondue Steak Fry hosted by the Lind House Association Board.

The steaks are the star at the 3rd Annual Pitchfork Fondue Steak Fry which will be held on Friday, September 5, from 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm at the Hermann Heights Park Shelters.

Choice beef steak cooked on a pitchfork in a cauldron of hot oil is the showstopper, but it’s the homemade baked beans and locally grown corn on the cob that add to the charm of this traditional style of cowboy cooking. Ice cream treats are for dessert and beverages include water, 1919 Root Beer, as well as other soft drinks. Guests are more than welcome to bring their own wine and beer.

Take-outs will be available. Cost is $20 per person. Tickets may be purchased by returning the form included in the quarterly newsletter along with a check. Tickets may also be purchased at HyVee, the New Ulm Chamber of Commerce Office or from a member of the Lind House Board of Directors.

Special thanks to Arneson Distributing of Sleepy Eye for the donation of 1919 Classic American Draft Root Beer.

Proceeds will be used to fund Lind House remodeling projects, which include installing additional kitchen cupboards and refinishing the kitchen floor and wooden countertops.
