Fall Food Fun!

Next to my picture in my high school yearbook are words that classmates used to describe me. “Loves winter” is among them. As an adult, I still love winter, but for different reasons. The encroaching cold season signifies something that I look forward to every year–Fall Food festivals! Here are a few food festivals happening in and around Madison this fall….

Did you miss it? Madison Magazine mixes food and fun throughout Madison. I particularly enjoyed Play with your Food, an adult-only evening at the Madison Children’s Museum where we decorated cupcakes and drank wine while sliding into the Wildernest.
