Wisconsin Cheese Tour

It doesn't matter where I am... I learn about my surroundings through food. Having moved to the far north Chicago suburbs recently, I had to reacquaint myself with the area I grew up in, What better way to do that than host a foodie tour of the area?! Today, I hosted a cheese tour just over the Wisconsin/Illinois border, which happens to be a favorite foodie hot spot to satisfy my love of cheese!

We started out the tour by meeting for lunch at The Brat Spot, a well known place in Kenosha, WI where you can get the best bratwurst around. I ordered the Cheddarwurst...

Here's a slide show of all the pictures from our tour. It was a great afternoon filled with lots of cheese samples, interesting foodie finds and overall, a fun day spent with new and familiar friends...

If you are in the area and want to satisfy your love of cheese, here's the list of places we went to. I hope you come and check out these places for yourself because there's more than enough cheese to share!
