Everyone needs to eat, and everyone does it differently. "The Flavor of Wisconsin: An Informal History of Food and Eating in the Badger State" is a look at the history of Wisconsin and its food - and despite stereotypes, it's not just cheese. Exploring a rich culinary culture, "The Flavor of Wisconsin" examines the eating habits of Wisconsinites which tell their tale as a people, and as a melting pot of immigrants like much of the rest of America. Including nearly five hundred recipes of exquisitely Wisconsinite cuisine such as War Bread, Serbian Djuvec, Chippewa Wild Rice, and more. "The Flavor of Wisconsin" serves as both as a culinary history and cookbook, and executes both very well.

I keep this book handy for when I want to cook the way my grandmother did. This book has recipes that women brought with them from the "old country". It is also full of comfort foods. I finally learned how to make spaetzle. Now I don't need to buy the dried stuff that comes in a box.

I bought this as a gift for someone that loves to cook. It's a great reference with history of Wisconsin and original recipes. I like that I see the author makes appearances around my city on occasion as well!

I was really excited when I ordered this book. I was expecting recipes for things I had eaten growing up that I had forgotten about or recipes that had been lost when older relatives had passed. I am sure that the recipes in this book are really good, and even plan on trying a few. However, as far as "flavors of WI" in my opinion is not accurate. I LIVE in Wisconsin and have only, in my whole life, heard of about 1/10 if not less of these dishes....and my family eats! When you have a recipe book of midwestern recipes and it includes recipes for: tomales, polenta, etc it is not truly a midwestern cookbook. If you are looking for authentic WI recipes don't waste your money on this book....you will be disappointed.
