Best Midwest Food Towns
Four fabulous plates in Madison
We would happily feast on a loaf of farmers market fave Stella's Hot and Spicy Cheese Bread, but here are four "real" essential Madison meals.
Brunch @ Sardine A golden-crispy Belgian waffle with crème fraîche and berries. sardinemadison.com
Dinner @ L'Etoile Pan-roasted pork chop with creamed corn, bacon and braised organic collard greens--all local. letoile-restaurant.com
Sweets @ Chocolate Shoppe A scoop of dark, sinfully rich Zanzibar ice cream, featuring a blend of three African cocoas. chocolateshoppeicecream.com
Souvenir @ Fromagination A block of cave-aged, five-year cheddar from Hook's Cheese Company in Mineral Point, and, to serve it, a bag of the shop's Potter's crackers. fromagination.com
