Among Tarik’s choices are South: Essential Recipes and New Explorations by Sean Brock, and Ruffage: A Practical Guide to Vegetables, by Abra Berens. For me, Baking at Republique: Masterful Techniques and Recipes is high on my list. Hear about the other books on our lists and why we think they’re cool.
Now if you’re looking for something to do on Friday nights that involves dining but isn’t your typical restaurant experience, the owners of Blue’s Egg are doing a series of Friday night, family-style dinners at their Shorewood location. There’s one coming up on Jan. 24, featuring a heritage pork rib roast with buttered dumplings and bacon-braised cabbage, with Black Forest cake for dessert. The dinners continue on select Friday night into spring.
And remember, This Bites airs at 8 a.m. on Friday mornings on 88Nine Radio Milwaukee. If you miss it, no sweat. You can catch our podcast right here.
