So, I got this info in an e-mail a couple of weeks ago and I must say I’m jealous of everyone that is going! I have never been to Wisconsin but perhaps next year’s birthday will be spent at the Yum Yum Fest!
If you’re in the Madison area, or have ever attended the Yum Yum Fest I’d love to know what you think!
Madison , Wisconsin is one of the best and often most overlooked foodie cities in the U.S. Our farm-to-table culture is cemented in our culinary landscape. Everything from food carts, pizza places all the way to high-end dining can claim a great relationship with area farms. And, the food shows it. From the freshest produce to the most intriguing way of preparing ingredients, Madison food scene is pretty amazing. We’re home to one of the US largest and oldest farmer’s markets—and which the added REQUIRMENT that the vendor also be the grower, we take this farm to table stuff pretty seriously!
Add to the equation of growing distillery movement (Death’s Door anyone?) or our highly regarded craft beer movement and you’ve got a destination that necessitates some strategic planning to make sure you get in all the best sips and bites! And for the best news yet—Yum Yum Fest is back (AUG 23)- the brainchild of the Madison Area Chef Network this premiere foodie event takes collaboration to its best and most delicious level yet!
