It highlights the best qualities of our state, the soil that our food comes from and a Chef that is utilizing it.
A little bit about David Swanson. He’s been working in restaurant kitchens since he was 16 years old, and it was at this age that he realized the wonders that could be created with food. He trained at the Culinary School of Kendall College (Evanston, IL), graduating in 1992. He also attended Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. But despite all of these accomplishments and travels, he came back to Wisconsin, where he created “Braise on the Go” Traveling Culinary School in 2006, and is working to open Braise Restaurant in the future.
Something that impressed me based on my passion for local products – He just won the Buy Local – Buy Wisconsin grant from the Wisconsin Deparment of Agriculture. He is truly a foodie ambassador of our state, and we are lucky to have his influence here.
I hope you enjoy the first of many unique Wisconsin Foodie shows over the next several months.
