Alison Lessmann

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.

Where are you from?

I’m originally from IL, but don’t hold it against me. I was married and moved to Oshkosh in the latter half of 2020 and have been enjoying getting to know my new home.

Why Food Blogging?

I used to write all the time when I was younger. It was a fun hobby that slowly faded as life took over. When I heard about Nosh Fox Valley, I thought it would be a great way to bring together my love of food and my long lost love of writing.

I also value good story telling. A big part of my day job is helping little humans learn to communicate. I think it is important for everyone to be able to communicate effectively and tell their story. Being a part of Nosh Fox Valley is a way for me to help my town and its food industry tell theirs.

I love going out to a restraunt for a meal because it’s a whole event. I love how the dish, the service, and the ambiance all comes together to make a meal an experience. Whether I’m going to a corner neighborhood bar to watch a Packer game or getting dressed up for a fancy anniversary dinner, I can’t wait to tell the stories of these diverse local eateries.

What are some of your favorite restaurants?

Ruby Owl Taproom, Plant Perk, Manila Resto, and Gardina’s
