Wisconsin Supper Club Books

Through Ron Faiola's work on his books, documentaries and speaking engagements, he has earned the reputation as Wisconsin's original and preeminent supper club scholar.

It all started with a popular documentary, Wisconsin Supper Clubs - An Old Fashioned Experience, which was released in 2011 and was broadcast on PBS stations nationwide for several years. Produced and directed by Ron Faiola, the response to the film was so enthusiastic, a book of the same name was released by Agate Publishing in 2013, and it was an instant hit. A second book, Wisconsin Supper Clubs: Another Round followed in 2016 with 50 more hidden gems and worthy destinations.

His third Agate release, The Wisconsin Supper Clubs Story - An Illustrated History, With Relish, covers more than a century of history behind this beloved dining tradition. The book was awarded a gold medal in the History/Non-Fiction category from the Midwest Independent Publishers Association (MiPA) in 2022.

A fourth book, Wisconsin Supper Clubs Second Edition - Expanded and Updated, was released in November of 2023. New to this edition are fifteen extra clubs that have entered the scene in the past decade, striving to be a part of this custom that is hugely popular with Wisconsin locals and regularly frequented by all midwestern foodies in the know.

You can find Ron's books at Sendik's Markets, Boswell Book Company in Milwaukee, your local bookstore, Barnes & Noble, a variety of gift shops and Wisconsin souvenir stores, or online at Amazon.com via the links below:
