If you haven’t heard yet, let me be the first to tell you…Wisconsin Foodie is back!
As of a few weeks ago (coinciding with the return of our famous expat L.A. director Mark Escribano), production has begun on the newest installment of Wisconsin Foodie. With a new season comes a new station and time – CBS 58 Sundays @ 10:30 a.m beginning September 13th.
Last season on Wisconsin Foodie, we featured a ton of great chefs and restaurants that support the local food movement. This year, we continue that tradition by featuring the people who are responsible for the food you eat. Some of the highlights for Season Three include: Urban Agriculture, Milwaukee’s Cafe Culture with Scott Johnson, Shopping the Dane County Farmers Market with Chef Tory Miller, Jim Godsil of Sweet Water Organics, Lotfotl Farm, Virtues of Wisconsin Cheese, and the list goes on. Also back this season are our wonderful and talented hosts: Kyle Cherek, Brian Moran and Jessica Bell.
For our more socially inclined friends, fans and family, we are planning an event to celebrate the return Wisconsin Foodie. You’ll be able to meet, touch and talk to the cast and crew of the show as well as feed and drink on all the local products we can muster up. Check back for more details!
If you are one of those people that just can’t get enough, you can find us on facebook (www.facebook.com/WisconsinFoodie) and Twitter (@wisconsinfoodie) and of course, the coolest website out there: www.wisconsinfoodie.com.
If you see us around town – say “hi”- we do not bite (other than if it’s a terrific meal) and are always interested in hearing from you. (Actually, Kyle might bite..)
