SHEBOYGAN - Sheboygan's food scene is front and center on the newly released 12th season of "Wisconsin Foodie" on PBS Wisconsin.

The first episode aired Thursday and showcased Miesfeld's Meat Market. Three of this season's eight episodes are set in Sheboygan, according to a news release. Future episodes will include City Bakery, West Side Bakery, Deer Creek Cheese, Henning's Cheese and 3 Sheeps Brewing Co.

Milwaukee comes in second with two episodes based on its food scene followed by Madison, La Crosse and Racine with one apiece.

“In our twelfth season we continue to celebrate the food-forward stories of our state that are shaped by this land, told by a collection of Wisconsin’s finest farmers, food producers and chefs,” said Arthur Ircink, founder and director of "Wisconsin Foodie," in the release.

According to the release, the new season is hosted by Chef Luke Zahm, James Beard-nominated chef and owner of Driftless Cafe in Viroqua.

"I’ve had the opportunity to immerse myself in the state’s strong, vibrant culture to help create broader awareness for our viewers of the stories of these places and the people," Zahm said in the release. "I want to shout from the rooftop to the rest of the world just how truly amazing Wisconsin is.”

Viewing events will be held throughout the upcoming season, including Burger/Bingo & "Wisconsin Foodie" Streaming Parties at Driftless Cafe on Thursdays from 5 to 9 p.m. The event will raise money for a local charity.

New episodes of "Wisconsin Foodie" will be released weekly on Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. on PBS Wisconsin and at 9:30 p.m. on Milwaukee PBS. They can also be streamed anytime on the Wisconsin Foodie YouTube Channel.
