A food lover’s gudie to the best of the Fox Valley

Nosh Fox Valley was started with intention of highlighting the Fox Valley food scene. We genuinely feel as business owners, that as a community we all need a little extra help especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. We love the local food scene in the Fox Valley and genuinely feel blessed to live in an area with diverse cuisines and fare that is very traditionally “Wisconsin.” We hope to highlight some of the amazing establishments that may not have known about and maybe even open our reader’s eyes to those hidden treasures on menus that are often overlooked.

We will be taking you on a journeys to our favorite local restaurants, delis, grocery stores, farms, coffee shops and even bars. We also hope to highlight the talents of our favorite chefs, mixologists and baristas. You might even see us try our hands in the kitchen.

Our staff is full of food lovers that hope to delight and share with you the passion and love they have for food through photography, videos and through our words.

Hi! I’m Alison. I work in an elementary school as a speech language pathologist. In my free time, I love discovering new restraunts and can be found dining out almost weekly. My husband and I are self-proclaimed coffee and whiskey snobs. We love sniffing and sipping and picking apart various beverages. Aside from food and drink, I enjoy watching movies, listening to live music, and hiking.

As a former barista, current home roaster, and home coffee enthusiast, I have a broad understanding of what all goes into the glorious liquid that is coffee. At Patzer Coffee, I write about pretty much every local place you can get a cup of coffee. My writings here at Nosh will be more focused on higher end, specialty, or craft coffee in the area.
