What I liked about this book was learning more about Wisconsin's different districts: the customs and foods common to each. The book is well organized and each shop or business is clearly listed and the food or goods described. Plus, there are recipes scattered throughout. What disappointed me about this book was that the book is all about listing a large number of shops, bakeries, cheese factories, and other such markets -- rather than being about the quality of the goods offered. This is fair: the book does not claim to be about the quality of the goods, only about the wide variety of them, and about where they're located. Still, when I visited many of these places, I was disappointed in what was offered. For that reason I'm a bit disappointed in the book.

Wisconsin cuisine reflects rich and diverse ethnic heritages and traditions. In Wisconsin's Hometown Flavors: A Cook's Tour Of Butcher Shops, Bakeries, Cheese Factories & Other Specialty Markets, Wisconsin-based cookbook writer and food expert Terese Allen takes the reader on a descriptive survey of more than 130 shops (arranged geographically); showcases more than 125 recipes; and provides "user friendly" maps to the best of Wisconsin's bakeries, cheese factories, butcher shops, and specialty markets. From Cheddar Cheese Coins; Greek-Style Omelette with Fresh Spinach, Black Olives & Feta Cheese; Lamb, Potato & Asparagus Stew; and Pear Frangipane Tart; to Mixed Greens with Grilled Pork Tenderloin & Blueberries; Swedish Limpa Bread; Dried Cherry Waldorf Salad; and Chocolate Cherry Bundt Cake, Wisconsin's Hometown Flavors is as much fun to simply browse through as it is "kitchen cook friendly" to plan a meal from!
