Life in a Northern Town: Cooking, Eating and Other Adventures Along Lake Superior is a peek into life on the Bayfield Peninsula in far northwestern Wisconsin. In 2007, author Mary Dougherty moved to this peninsula surrounded by the waters of Lake Superior and Chequamegon Bay. Through recipes, stories and photos, this book explores what it means to nourish a family and community. As the author incorporates what is grown and raised in northern Wisconsin into her family's favorite dishes, she continues a cultural tradition begun by immigrants hundreds of years ago. Life in a Northern Town is a one-of-a-kind collection of globally and regionally inspired recipes featuring local cheeses, meats and produce from the farmers in and around Bayfield.
