Our first taste of Nueske’s bacon was purely by accident and in California at that. A friend brought some over and it was so good that someone blurted out half joking, half not that “this must be from Wisconsin”. The back of the package revealed that it was true, a little town in the center … Read more

While some of these photos are from last fall when we visited Usingers Famous Sausages, we also had the cahnce to try some more of it this weekend when first arriving in Milwaukee and it’s pretty clear that they know what they are doing. My personal favorite was the smoked Canadian Bacon (had no idea … Read more

While traveling down to The O.C. (Orange County, California, where I used to live, and one of the few places that has a Wisconsin Vibe in CA), I stopped by the market I used to shop at all the time and discovered that they now carry Usinger’s sausages and meat products. I took these photos … Read more

Who knew Old Wisconsin, Piggly Wiggly, Sargento, Kohler, & about a zillion other great companies are headquartered in Sheyboygan. Well anyone who lives there, I suppose, but there’s a lot of great manufacturing out of the sleepy coastal town (a couple of examples below). We also had the great pleasure of interviewing the troup putting … Read more

Kenosha has more than its share of cheese shops, and while the more well known is the Mar’s Cheese Castle, a lesser known but just as unique cheese shop is right up the street, the Bobby Nelson Cheese Shop. What’s coolest about his place, besides the awesome meats and cheeses, are the paintings the run … Read more

Reblogged from FOX6Now.com: MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- When the Green Bay Packers go to the playoffs, the players win, the fans win, and certain businesses definitely win. For Michael Paris, chef at Saz's State House, there was excitement because of the Packers' victory over the Bears. "It was very much an added bonus for us," said … Read more

While I’m feverishly editing my way towards the end of the documentary, I keep going through archives to find needed pictures, and every day I keep finding fun ones that had slipped my mind previously. Here’s a great place in Racine, kind of hidden if you’re not looking for it, called Brossman’s Meats and they … Read more

Almena is a small town that you’ll miss if you blink off Highway 8 in Barron County. One reason to keep your eyes open and pull over if traveling that way is the Almena Meat Company. Try the double smoked beef snack sticks and, if you love smoked sausages, you’ll love these even more. I … Read more

Came across these pictures from at least two years ago when I drove through New London at dusk. I had no idea Sara Lee and Hillshire Farms had such a big pressence in Wisconsin. But it makes perfect sense since making great food is second nature to us. Got a pile of brand new photos … Continue reading

Things went quite well for our return to Cameron “Hometown” showing of the film. My best count was about 140 plus in attendance. Not bad for a small town in the Northwoods. People really enjoyed the film while snacking on Ellsworth cheese curds, Nuseke’s amazing bacon, Cheese Brothers cheese, and more. We’d also like … Continue reading

Who knew that the world famous “The Swiss Colony” magazine order (and now internet) company was from Wisconsin? Well I did even as a child, but living in California for so long, it was always awesome to see the Swiss Colony magazine in friends houses, though they had no idea it was a Wisconsin based … Continue reading

Well these are a bit on the late side, but it has been an awesomely busy summer. This is us having some fun at Mars Cheese Castle back in late May. We’ll be doing another later this fall during a Packers away game weekend. Note the giant spindle of “Cheeseheads” DVD’s on sale there. LOVE … Continue reading

The 70th annual Alice In Dairyland finale ended at Lambeau Field Atrium this year with a fun night of great food, great views, and good competition. And to make clear, the Alice In Dairyland events shift counties from year to year, so it being at Lambeau Field this year was an anomaly that won’t happen … Continue reading

Fun with Chester is redundant, as he’s always a blast to hang out with. And we did just that at the Appleton Post Crescent screening of the doc on the UW Fox Valley campus in Menasha. Just down the hall is a really cool planetarium. Really good turnout too, about 80 people in attendance. What … Continue reading

These are from an event we did right around the time of the nationwide release of the documentary (March 11th, 2017). Lots of fun and food and of course a film. Did a fun interview with a reporter from The Spectator (UWEC), at some TV coverage from WEAU 13 news. What a busy but terrific … Continue reading

A fun day at Mars Cheese Castle in Kenosha with the Marcol man and myself. Okay, so a lot of M word play going on here, but it opened itself up to it. Even more amazing was having our names up in lights on the Mars lighted freeway sign (see photos) overlooking the Interstate 94 corridor … Continue reading
