'The Flavor of Wisconsin for Kids' Book Launch
Designed for kids and adults to use together, "The Flavor of Wisconsin for Kids" documents the history and traditions of food in our state and presents it in a colorful, kid-friendly format that's both instructional and fun. The book examines different food sources, how the origins of the state's foodways have changed over the years, and a selection of related recipes.
Terese Allen and Bobbie Malone will be at the Madison Children's Museum for the launch of 'The Flavor of Wisconsin for Kids.'
The authors will be demonstrating recipes from the book, and kids are encouraged to help make the food, pick fresh ingredients from the rooftop garden, and sample their creations. The authors will also be available to sign books.
Terese Allen has written many books and articles about Wisconsin's food traditions and culinary culture, including "The Flavor of Wisconsin," which she co-authored with the late Harva Hachten, the 2012 "Wisconsin Local Foods Journal," and "Cafe Wisconsin Cookbook."
As director of the Office of School Services at the Wisconsin Historical Society, Bobbie Malone wrote and edited many books for classrooms, including the fourth-grade textbook, "Wisconsin: Our State, Our Story”; the "New Badger History" series; and the "Badger Biographies" series.
