We have some published locals on the books–cookbooks, to be exact. Here are a few to add to your collection.
Wisconsin Supper Club Cookbook by Mary Bergin takes you on a hearty-appetite-fulfilling trip throughout the state. Photographs of neon-light nostalgia accompany pages of stories and recipes, like the Bloody Oscar cocktail (named after Oscar Mayer) at Madison’s iconic Smoky’s Club.
The Norske Nook Book of Pies and Other Recipes by Jerry Bechard, owner of four Norske Nook Bakery & Restaurants throughout Wisconsin, and Cindee Borton-Parker, the regional manager for these establishments, features straightforward recipes and glorious photographs of award-winning desserts and an added bonus: the recipe for their famous lefse.
The Little French Bakery Cookbook is filled with sweet and savory recipes based on Susan Holding’s cooking classes that take place in her home in North Freedom, and all are geared toward the novice baker. This is Holding’s first cookbook. On a whim, she decided to attend a basic pastry course at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and the rest is history.
