    1. Jeremy Iggers has a website. He will move over to reviewing for The Rake soon, and that website can be found in his posts.

      Kathie Jenkins's and Nancy Ngo's reviews are available online on Thursday, the day before they are printed in the Pioneer Press.

      Rick Nelson's reviews are available online on Wednesday, the day before they are printed in the Star Tribune.

      Minneapolis-St. Paul magazine lists their reviews online:

      So does the Minnesota Monthly magazine. In addition, the Food Editor Rachel Hutton maintains a blog on the site:
