Guest host Stephanie Klett, Secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Tourism, and the Discover Wisconsin crew criss-crossed the state to visit some of Wisconsin’s top culinary destinations. “Local Foods and Finds: Wisconsin Culinary Tour” airs Jan. 31-Feb. 1 across the Midwest on Discover Wisconsin, the nation’s longest-running tourism TV show. In this episode, Stephanie and the crew travel to Madison, Door County, Ashland County, Stevens Point and Plover where they visit restaurants, shops, wineries, and farmer’s markets and experience popular Wisconsin food traditions.
“Wisconsin is home to incredible culinary experiences,” said Klett. “Whether dining at a restaurant or visiting a farmer’s market, it’s all a part of how a visitor experiences a destination. Food is fun and it brings people together, which are what vacations are all about.”
