Heavy Table food editor James Norton joins the Current's Morning Show to talk about the local food scene.

Today on The Morning Show's Eating and Drinking, James Norton chatted with Steve Seel about the new offerings for this years State Fair. The fair kicks off tomorrow and James and his crew from Heavy Table will be out front and center starting at 9am to try all the latest offerings at the State Fair. He spoke to Steve about the foods he's most excited to try, the ones he thinks could be interesting to try, and the ones that he's pretty sure will be disastrous.

James has also written a book of short stories that he's started a kickstarter for. If you are interested in the book, you can check out more information about The Wendigo's Credit Card and Other Stories here.
