Wisconsin Foodie is back for a fifth season on Wisconsin Public Television, and I’m excited because that means it’s time to start planning new culinary adventures.
As the title indicates, “Foodie” is a show about food, but the program also fits nicely into the travel genre. Each episode, host Kyle Cherek visits restaurants, bars, creameries, farms — you name it — that are among the most talked about in their communities. All are certainly worth a visit, whether that means driving across town or across the state.
I’ve been to a handful of venues based on Foodie’s recommendation and was delighted when I saw that I’ve already been to one exceptional pizzeria featured on the new season. Last summer, I stopped at Salvatore’s Tomato Pies in Sun Prairie to break up a long drive to the Twin Cities from Lake Geneva. My dining experience was great and it’s been enhanced now that Wisconsin Foodie has revealed the chef and the story behind a pizza you can’t get anywhere else in Wisconsin.
Check out Salvatore’s and more culinary delights on Wisconsin Foodie Thursdays at 7:30, following another great travel show Around the Corner With John McGivern. Both are available to watch online, anytime. Oh, and if you visit Salvatore’s don’t be afraid to keep it simple…the crust, sauce and whole-milk mozz are perfect as is. Happy (culinary) travels.
