Who could forget when the New York Times cast big, grape-flavored aspersions on the state of Minnesota? Around Thanksgiving 2014, the Gray Lady bestowed each state with its own signature dish for the holiday feast: turkey platters, cranberry sauces, pies. Would Minnesota bear the standard of a wild rice hot dish? Rhubarb crisp? Nope. Instead grape salad — a largely unrecognized recipe from some unidentified Minnesota "heiress" — became the greatest affront to Minnesotan cuisine we had ever known. Grapes, sour cream, broiled brown sugar, and pecans: We weren't claiming it, and we took to the internet to let it be known. The New York Times public editor eventually buckled under the pressure, admitting it was a "bizarrely wrong" choice. But not before the hashtag #GrapeGate was born, and locals got a little Minnesota not-so-nice.
