Touring Wisconsin Food

Page 2 of 75

Wood County, number 72!

Wisconsin’s 5.7 million people (2010 census) are spread out over 54 thousand square miles or an average of about 105 folks per square mile.  We are organized into 72 counties.  Over the last 9 months we have carefully visited each or those counties to search for special Supper Clubs, bakeries, meat markets, breweries, bike trails, wineries, bed and breakfasts, parks, attractions and anything we think you might enjoy in each county we visited.  Wisconsin is rich in ethnic traditional food artisans from many origins, newly emerging microbreweries and wineries, restored historic bed and breakfast lodgings, vast areas of forests and park lands preserved for public use, a growing network of bike, hike and snowmobile trails and a long list of our beloved Wisconsin supper clubs.  This week we visit Wood County, the last of our 72 county tours.  Over the coming weeks we will compile listings of the “Best of the Best” from our research around the state.

If you had the time, the funds and a nice touring vehicle which 20 supper clubs would you have on your “Got to get there!” list?  We’ll share with you our list.  And ask for your input too.  But first let’s close out this effort with Wood County. Continue reading

State Fair, Sheboygan and Taylor counties

Wisconsin State Fair and other important dates

The Wisconsin State Fair starts its annual 10 day run on August 4th.  Cream puffs, cheese curds, ice cream, brats, corn on the cobb and lots of food on a stick are all here.  Judging of cattle, horses, pigs and feathered friends can be enjoyed each day.

Wisconsin State Fair Cream Puffs

The Wisconsin State Fair certainly has a reputation for unique and unusual foods, which is why they created an Annual Food Competition, The Sporkies. Each year eight finalists are selected from several dozen entries, and a panel of celebrity judges chooses the recipients of three Golden Spork Awards

The first Friday in August, this year it is the 5th, is International Beer Day.  In Wisconsin it is not yet a state holiday but is celebrated with gusto reflecting our German heritage and long brewing history.  Wisconsin’s largest brewers are Miller in Milwaukee, Minhas in Monroe, New Glarus Brewing and Stevens Point Brewing.  However the craft beer industry is growing and Wisconsin is now home to 70 members of the Wisconsin Brewers Guild.

August 6th is National Mustard Day and will be celebrated in downtown Middleton, Wisconsin at the National Mustard Museum.

August 10th is National S’mores Day celebrating that wonderful creation enjoyed around campfires all across Wisconsin.

Oshkosh, Wisconsin has just completed the annual Experimental Aircraft Association show that draws hundreds of thousands of people and hundreds of airplanes.  Aircraft enthusiasts love the opportunity to experience the aviation marvels.  The EAA grounds also are the location of an aircraft museum.
