CIAS director Mike Bell will speak about the Culture of Agriculture at the Science of Supper Clubs, which is part of the Wisconsin Science Festival. We hope you can attend, and be sure to stop by our booth!
This event spotlights the distinctive food, culture and history of Wisconsin’s supper clubs. Presented in three “courses,” the celebration features the origins of the signature Old Fashioned cocktail, relish tray, fish fry and other hallmarks of a true supper club experience. The event begins with a special happy hour SoundWaves lecture and concert, continues to the main course highlighting food samples, demonstrations and talks from UW–Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences faculty and concludes with a special “dessert” with Wisconsin Book Festival authors Terese Allen, Ron Faiola and Robin Shepard sharing their perspectives on the enduring allure of the supper club. While this event is free and open to the public, the Taste of Wisconsin Supper Clubs by Steenbock’s on Orchard requires advance ticket purchase.
