People naturally think of cheese when talking food in Wisconsin; still the state’s culinary heritage reaches beyond dairy. On this Wisconsin Weekend, we talk about fish boils and handmade sausage, vánočka, lefse and more. Our guest crisscrosses the state to acknowledge Wisconsin’s food traditions and the ways people keep them alive.

Do you break out the cultural cuisine when the holidays near? What is your go-to family recipe from past generations? How do you experience different cultures in Wisconsin through food? Email ideas@wpr.org, tweet @wprmornings or post on the Ideas Network Facebook page.
