WHS Press: You’ve met and spoken to many readers over the lifetime of The Flavor of Wisconsin—is there an encounter or conversation that has stayed with you?

T.A.: It’s not so much one encounter. It’s that no matter where I go for presentations on The Flavor of Wisconsin, there’s always a lively Q and A. People get up and talk about their family and community food customs, their childhood food memories, their favorite supper club or holiday dish. Food just really gets people excited. It gets them sharing, connecting. I think that’s because when we talk about what we eat, we’re talking about who we are, where we come from, and what we value.
