The Door County Fish Boil – A Truly Unique Regional Experience!

Freshly caught Lake Michigan Whitefish, New Potatoes, Onions and Salt over an open wood burning fire sound good? If you say yes, head up to Door County to watch a Boil Master ply his or her craft with a Wisconsin original!

The food is all placed into a basket that is lowered into a kettle full of boiling water. Dinner guests gather around the outdoor fire with a beverage to watch and wait for that “boil over” moment. The food is served up covered in melted butter with rolls and cole slaw. Don’t forget dessert of Door County Cherry pie ala mode!

I’ve been heading up to Door County since I was a kid and never tire of the whole experience. My favorite spot is Pelletier’s in Fish Creek, though there are a dozen or more others to choose from too!
