Are You Getting Ready For Some BOOYA?

Oct 2, 2022 | eat/drink

The air is getting fresh, the leaves are starting to change color, and that can only mean one thing: it’s booya time!

If you’ve never eaten this thick, rich stew cooked over an open flame, our list of events is a great place to start. And if you’re a booya vet, use it to mark your calendar.

What BOOYA is? Booya is a thick stew of probable Belgian origin made throughout the Upper Midwestern. Booya can require up to two days and multiple cooks to prepare; it is cooked in specially designed “booya kettles” and usually meant to serve hundreds or even thousands of people. The name can also refer to a social event surrounding the meal.
