The Flavor of Wisconsin: Sweet and Savory Holiday Traditions

Terese Allen, co-author of The Flavor of Wisconsin: An Informal History of Food and Eating in the Badger State, will talk about the ethnic diversity of Wisconsin's holiday foods including Mexican tamales, Danish kringle and Armenian mavish. She will also prepare a sampling of Belgian boonoh cookies for all to enjoy and then share recipes for these and other dishes from her books. Enjoy a cup of hot cocoa while you find a new food for your holiday table. A family craft project will also be ongoing. Join your kids or leave them at the crafts area to create a priceless present while you give yourself a culinary respite from the hustle and bustle of the season. Need the perfect gift? Allen will sign copies of The Flavor of Wisconsin after her presentation.
