Erica - Foxy Falafel

Erica Strait -Chef/Owner of Foxy Falafel

South Dakota farm gal Erica Strait left the state to study at New York City’s Institute for Integrative Nutrition and its Natural Gourmet Institute, guided by her interest in food and nutrition. After cooking in the professional kitchens of New York she returned to the Midwest.  Strait found herself missing the falafel she craved in New York, so she did what anyone with the know-how would do: she created her own version. Throw in Strait’s affection for street food, and you have Foxy Falafel, which for the last few years has been serving falafel and more at her restaurant and two food trucks around the Twin Cities.
