Wisconsin Supper Club Cookbook

Iconic Fare and Nostalgia from Landmark Eateries

Book Description

The supper club is a tradition and now somewhat of a phenomenon found in the Upper Midwestern states of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, and Iowa. They are so retro that they are coming back in to vogue. With two books out chronicling the history of this by gone era, covering everything from the original supper clubs to the modern incarnations of the once popular genre of eating, the time is right for a cookbook featuring the famed recipes from these establishments. Midwest Supper Clubs will uncover the secrets to the food and the drinks that keep people coming back to the party any time of the day.
