  • State Fair Food: Deep-Fried Beer

    State fairs are all about the food, especially those that come on a stick. This year, the <a href="http://www.mnstatefair.org/" target="external">Minnesota State Fair</a> is debuting camel on a stick. Yes, camel.

    Jamal Hashi, owner of the Safari Express food stand, said camel is a cherished delicacy back in his home country of Somalia. He imports the meat from Australia, where the animals are farmed. Hashi compares the flavor to bison. He says it's a lean, high-protein meat without any gamey taste.
