'Creating Dairyland' Book Event: If it Weren't For Cows
The Culinary History Enthusiasts of Wisconsin (CHEW) will present Ed Janus, author of the Wisconsin Historical Society Press book, "Creating Dairyland," at its November meeting. Janus believes that the dairy cow created Wisconsin, that is, the Wisconsin we know today and the one we love: the neat barns with their ranks of silos, the undulating green of grasses and especially the cows, our avatars of contentment. Janus will reveal how America's Dairyland was created through a remarkable effort of intelligence, belief and labor that began 160 years ago — an effort that continues today.
Ed Janus is an audio journalist, writer and oral historian, and the author of 'Creating Dairyland.'
Coming to the CHEW meeting? Why not bring a nonperishable food item to donate to the Goodman Center food pantry. The center is giving out food as fast as it can take it in and the need has never been greater. Items needed: tuna, beans, shelf-stable milk, juice, canned fruits and vegetables, macaroni and cheese, peanut butter, cereal, infant formula, baby food, diapers, soup (not tomato), rice and can openers. Financial donations are also welcome.
