Wisconsin B&B Association

Home > Taste of Wisconsin > Cookbooks



      When you hear the words “Wisconsin B&B,” does your mind (and nose and palate) immediately conjure up images of luscious homemade pastries, entrees with locally sourced ingredients, good-for-you fruit side dishes and aromatic coffee freshly ground?  The credit for that sensory treat goes to the “home chefs,” also known as innkeepers, who are members of the Wisconsin Bed & Breakfast Association (WBBA). 

Find out how to make innkeepers’ signature dishes and most-requested recipes with the 8th edition of the Wisconsin B&B Association cookbook, now available at member inns or you may order here. 

This latest cookbook from the group includes a whopping 260 recipes contributed by 90 inns from across Wisconsin.

Food Trends at B&Bs
      A few new culinary trends turned up in this latest edition of the cookbook. 

  • More savory recipes with seasonings and spices that have southwest and international influences
  • This cookbook is the first to have a category dedicated to recipes that address special dietary needs, like gluten-free and vegan.
  • The commitment to sourcing locally, whether that means from the innkeepers’ own organic garden or the local farmers’ market, is evident as well.
  • Healthy recipes are “spiced throughout the cookbook,” with offerings like baked oatmeal dishes and fruit dishes.


        What's Inside the Cookbook ...
