Cookbook for Wisconsin?

    I moved to Wisconsin for college from Asia last summer. Since I love to cook, I did a little research in order to find a cookbook. If I get an Asian cookbook, most of the ingredients would be hard to find. I guess a typical American cookbook would work, but pizzas, burgers, or sandwiches are already everywhere. Italian and Mexican food are similar and the ingredients won't be hard to find. However, the cuisines seem hard to cook. Finally, I chose a German cookbook. I thought the ingredients, like fresh cream and cheese, would be easy to find and eastern European cuisines are usually simple. The problem is that the cookbook seems to assume that I leave in a small European town with a farmer's market open every morning. I can't find fresh cream, kohlrabi, duck, rabbit, or other important ingredients. I got totally confused. These things are not supposed to be hard to find in an agricultural state like Wisconsin. I feel like everything is pre-made and because of that, some ingredients are not on the shelf for the they can't be pre-made. Any recommendation for cookbook?

    I agree with Caroline, check out the Kruse cookbook. If you go to Amazon and search for Wisconsin cookbooks you will find a bunch there. There is nothing really special about the foods in WI except for the cheese and cranberries.

    Are you going to school at Madison?

    I have lived here my whole life and have never had rabbit or squirrel but venison I get every year but you have to know someone who has some since i don't think it is sold in stores.
