The deepest drill-down yet into the Soul Daddy / America’s Next Great Restaurant fiasco, DeRusha wonders whether the government shutdown could shut down State Fair food (say it ain’t so!), a write-up of the Chowgirls Killer Catering Summer Solstice Supper, details on the Bohemian B&B tragedy in New Ulm, a fantastic-looking new place called Paoli Bread and Brat Haus has opened near Madison, how Project Sweetie Pie teaches kids to plant and sell healthy foods, a photo of fish and chips from Gelly’s in Stockholm, WI (our review here), and the cheese results are back from the Wisconsin State Fair (results as PDF; they include Katie Hedrich, who we recently profiled and who joined us for our North Coast Nosh event).
