Wisconsin Foodie host Chef Luke Zahm
Passion is the heart of nearly every conversation we entertain on the FoodCrush podcast. But few guests come to the proverbial table with a more passionate stance than Chef Luke Zahm, co-owner of Driftless Cafe in Viroqua, Wisconsin and host of “Wisconsin Foodie.”
From his upbringing in a small town in Vernon County, Wisconsin to the series of events that inspired him to open Driftless Cafe, Zahm shares not only his story but his fervor for the agricultural roots that make the State of Wisconsin an epicenter for food-based industry. Along the way, he shares stories of his development as a local food champion, the inspiration he gleaned from hometown heroes like Butch Vig, producer of the diamond-selling Nirvana album “Nevermind” and his reluctant path to hosting the Emmy Award winning television show.
If that weren’t enough, you’ll hear Zahm share both his hopes and optimism for the Dairy State on its journey to recovering from the global COVID-19 pandemic.
