This Bites: Farm-fresh Ingredients Delivered to Your Home, Plus a New Palestinian Bakery

The culinary podcast featuring 88Nine’s Tarik Moody and MilMag’s Ann Christenson talking about all things dining-related.

This Bites is right here for some delicious talk. Our weekly dining podcast runs Friday mornings at 8 a.m. on 88Nine Radio Milwaukee and features 88Nine’s Tarik Moody and me. You can listen to our whole podcast here. Without further ado, we kick off the episode with farms that have an online “general store.” There are no membership fees and you don’t have to join a CSA. You order as much as you want, and if you get free shipping (to your home) with a certain order amount. It’s an easy, direct way to support Wisconsin farms and continue to get fresh ingredients year-round.

If you’ve been interested in trying more immigrant cuisine, Greenfield is now the home of Taqwa Bakery & Restaurant (4651 S. 27th St.), which offers dishes such as mfarrakih (diced potatoes and scrambled eggs), traditional handmade breads baked in a stone oven and features daily specials like stuffed zucchini, Mloukheyih with rice and chicken, and various desserts. Look for the latest menu info on Taqwa’s Facebook page.

And finally after putting many safety mechanisms in place, Mr. B’s Steakhouse in Brookfield has reopened. One of the changes is a reconfigured patio, and they’re also offering seating inside the dining room. Listen to hear more about those changes.
