Wisconsin Food Favorites
Thursday, January 18, 2018

Ask someone from another state about the food of Wisconsin and they will most likely say “Beer, Brats, Cheese”. Yet, there is so much more! Wisconsin has some incredible local foods; 
you can choose from an extraordinary array of edibles: produce from apples cranberries to zucchini; ethnic sausages and grass-fed meats; fish from lake and stream; foraged foods; and specialties like hand-crafted beers and wines and cream puffs.
Tonite we’ll sample some flavors that will please your friends and family…

Grilled Cheese & more…
Thursday, April 19, 2018 

Cooked bread and cheese is an ancient food according to food historians, popular across the world in many cultures. Evidence indicates that, in the U.S., the modern version of the grilled cheese sandwich originated in the 1920's when inexpensive sliced bread and American cheese became readily available. But tonite we are going beyond the weird yellow cheese squares and taking it up a notch. These sandwiches are hearty and filling and delicious, yet still give you that childhood comfort food feeling. You'll sample...
Gluten-free Grilled Cheese on Cauliflower “Bread”
Deep-fried Salami & Pickle Grilled Cheese
Whole Grain Grilled Buttermilk Bleu Cheese with Smashed Avocado & Roasted Tomatoes
Brussel Sprout & Mushroom Grilled Cheese with Prosciutto

Hands-on Yooper Pasty Cooking Class
Saturday, March 24, 2018
2 sessions—
9am-noon or
1pm-4pm  (1-4pm session--SOLD OUT)

Strictly limited to 8 people per session!


Pasty (rhymes with nasty--but that is definitely not it's description) originated with Cornish miners who migrated to Michigan's Upper Peninsula in the 1800's. They brought with them their beloved national dish: the pasty. The Finnish miners that followed adopted these meat pies as their own (easily transportable for long subterranean days!), and the pasty became such a large part of the regional culture that there's an annual pasty festival in early summer.

Do you love them? Have you always wanted to make them, but didn't know how? 
Well, this is the class for you!

We're gonna chop, dice, slice and bake up a batch of pasties and each person 
will get to take home 3 to eat or freeze.
These delectable pastry pockets are filled with beef and pork, potatoes, onions, carrots and, of course, rutabaga!

I'll need each person who attends to bring a chef’s knife and a paring knife--safely wrapped for transport, an apron and a baking tray to take home their pasties.
