FARM to TABLE. PAST to PRESENT.
First, we travel back in time, boarding a private motorcoach in Chicago for a scenic ride through northern Illinois and into the heart of Wisconsin's dairy lands. Our first stop is Old World Wisconsin, a living, breathing outdoor history museum depicting how families -- many of them immigrants from Europe -- farmed, worked and ate back in the late 1800's
Explore the working farm where oxen still carefully plow the fields and simple, hearty food is still cooked on open fires and pot-bellied stoves. Tour the beautiful heirloom gardens with a food historian. Enjoy a rustic cooking lesson and bake (and savor) a spice cake from a cherished Old World recipe. Take a turn hand-cranking homemade ice cream and learn the secrets of churning fresh butter. Browse the general store, step inside the one-room schoolhouse and watch the blacksmith and artisan craftsman at work. (A picnic lunch is included.)
Then we're off to a Staller Estate, a boutique winery not far away. We'll be their guests at a multi-course, farm-to-table dinner that showcases the estate's favorite bottles paired with creative dishes by Black Sheep of Whitewater, a wonderful little eatery that sizzles with seasonal, locally-sourced meat, herbs and produce. After a leisurely dinner, dessert and goodbyes, we board the bus for the ride back home.
