Live and Let Dine on $31.42...PER WEEK

The government has apparently determined that one must spend a minimum of $31.42 per week on food to acquire proper nutrition. This is, in a way, a nutritional poverty line.

The Pioner Press' Nancy Ngo brought this $31.42 idea to some of Saint Paul's most noted chefs. Two of them, Alexander Dixon of Zander Cafe and Margaret Doran of Margaux, took up the gauntlet. Ngo's article is supported by the chefs' menus. Good eats on a budget, but it just isn't that easy (as one might assume).
