Foodie Field Trip: Old World Cooking Tour & Winery Dinner

  • to
  • 123 E Main St

  • This Foodie Field Trip includes round-trip motorcoach transportation. The pick-up spot will be announced two weeks before we go.
  • Past to Present.  Farm to Table.

     

    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 (www.OldWorldWisconsin.com), 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 over open fires and atop pot-bellied stoves. Tour the beautiful heirloom gardens with a food historian. Enjoy a rustic cooking lesson; 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, peek inside the one-room schoolhouse and watch the blacksmith and artisan craftsmen at work. (A picnic lunch is included.)

    Then we’re off to Staller Estate (www.StallerEstate.com), a boutique winery not far away. We’ll be their guests at a multi-course, farm-to-table dinner showcasing the estate’s favorite bottles paired with creative dishes by Black Sheep of Whitewater (www.EatAtBlackSheep.com), a wonderful little eatery that sizzles with seasonal, locally-sourced meat, herbs and produce. After a leisurely dinner, wine, dessert and goodbyes, we board the bus for the ride back home.

    The cost for this adventure is $192.47 pp, and includes round-trip motocoach transportation, entrance fees to Old World Wisconsin, the Heirloom Garden Tour and the 19th Century Cooking Lesson, a picnic lunch, sightseeing, dinner with wine pairings, and taxes. There is a strict limit of thirty guests, and since we’re sharing this tour with our fellow foodies at Chicago Dining & Cultural Exchange (another great foodie meetup group!), you’ll need to get your ticket right away to secure a spot – don’t let the bus leave without you!

    Tickets must be purchased in advance at http://19thcenturycooking8.brownpapertickets.com/ Please note that due to the popularity of this event, we will not be able to hold your reservation unless you purchase a ticket. You must purchase your ticket in addition to your RSVP for this meetup. If we’re unable to confirm your ticket purchase you may be removed from the guest list prior to departure. Motorcoach passenger pick-up location will be emailed to you two weeks before the trip, so be sure you use a valid (primary) email address.

      Cindy, please ask Agnes at info@travelblendtours It's fine with me, but since we're visiting a winery, we'll have to confirm. Cool?

      Cindy, you may bring your son. Please send me an email ([masked]) with his name. I can arrange non-alcoholic drink options for him.

    Would it be okay to bring my 17 year old son. Is that a problem? My RSVP is tentative. Right now it looks okay, but whose to say.

    June 26, 2013

  • Ruth S.

    I will be happy to pay for gas, etc. but need to car pool. Unless there's some public trans we can take.

    June 26, 2013

    • Katie B.

      We're taking a bus, Ruth, and the cost is included in the ticket price. No need to carpool!
