Another Baconfest Chicago has come and gone and let us tell you: BFC 2014 – the sixth annual – was the biggest and best Baconfest we’ve ever seen – and we’ve seen our fair share of pork parties.  Three sessions comprised of over 170 of Chicago’s best restaurants competing for the coveted Golden Rasher award […]

It’s finally warm enough to start having cookouts at our Company Store here in Wittenberg, Wisconsin.  The first Nueske’s cookout of the year took place last Friday afternoon.  We served up grilled Angus ribeye sandwiches with fried onions and mushrooms (on the side, if you prefer). Weather permitting, we’ll be hosting cookouts in front of […]

This year is one more that we can count our trip to the Fancy Food Show as a big success.  Nueske’s always has a good time at the show talking with chefs, restaurateurs, and our other food business friends – but it would be untrue to say we didn’t have just a little more fun […]

Even up here in the middle of rural northern Wisconsin, we’ve noticed the urban food truck boom.   We know it has to be a big deal if we’re hearing about it all the way in Wisconsin’s northwoods, where many times the nearest dining establishments are scattered truck stops or tiny village diners and where there […]

This is our newest namesake, Nueske the Cat – just check the tags for proof! We heard about Nueske when his owner, Ethan, emailed us a couple of weeks ago to share pictures of his pet. Ethan’s daughter had adopted the stray cat and gave him his bacon-y title of her own accord. Since his […]
