While supper clubs are little-known in much of the country, they thrive in the upper Midwest, a fact proven in Mary Bergin's Wisconsin Supper Club Cookbook. Here are recipes for hearty food and stout drinks along with vivid descriptions of the supper-club dining experience, including Friday fish fries and Saturday prime rib as well as old-fashioned cocktails and after-dinner ice-cream libations. For those of us who prize culinary tradition, the charm of this book goes beyond enticing recipes. Mary Bergin has created a glorious tribute to a uniquely American way of going out to eat.--Michael Stern, Roadfood.com
