Allen, co-author of The flavor of Wisconsin, will talk about how adults can explore the history and traditions of food in our state, with children. Drawing upon the same material that made her first book so fascinating, The flavor of Wisconsin for Kids is presented in a colorful, kid-friendly format that's instructional, fun, and includes recipes for families to make together. Mindful of the importance of teaching kids about "where" the foods they eat come from, each chapter examines a different food source--forests; waters; vegetable, meat, and dairy farms; gardens; and communities.
Sponsored by the Urban Ecology Center and Outpost Natural Foods Co-Op, with support from Slow Food WISE and MKE Foodies, the Eat Local Resource Fair features workshops and talks about how you can eat more locally and why it is important to you, our community and the environment.
