This weekend we are joining forces with Local Fare and Rink DaVee from Shooting Star Farms and offering a five course Prix Fixe menu based on Local Foods for the "Eat Local Challenge"
Here is the hype...
The Eat Local Challenge
The Walker House with the support of our local farms (especially Rink, Jenny and Charlie of Shooting Star Farms) will host a special menu from Thursday, September 11th through Sunday, September 14th to join forces with Local Fare to help promote local farms and the "Eat Local" philosophy.
The "Eat Local Challenge" is to challenge communities throughout SW Wisconsin to spend 10% of their food budget in purchasing local food and supporting local fare.
Local Fare has joined with the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture and other organizations to promote awareness of the benefits and delights to be found in consuming local food.
Chef Michael Hayes has created and designed a Prix Fixe Five Course dinner utilizing six local area farms which runs through Sunday, September 14th, 2008
Support your local farms, community and businesses!!!
And the menu is....
Smoked Cheddar Fondue with Walker Bread Hook’s Medium Cheddar Maple Leaf Smoked Cheddar Pecatonica Farms Greenbush Italian Sausage Blue Marble Milk

There is so much that goes on in my world of experimentations and flavors that I thought it would be kind of cool to start documenting ideas, recipes and pics.
If you are a facebooker then click on the link above and join me on Facebook, there are a ton of pics along with food and nutrition articles on there, whereas the blog is mostly my CheffyBabbles...
So here it goes...
I love to eat good food as well as invent and prepare it, and as the blog will tell you, I have one helluva good time preparing it...
So Welcome to My World-
No Passion, No Love
