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

On this episode of This Bites (on 88Nine Radio Milwaukee) thinks January – that is, the January issue of Milwaukee Magazine. This month’s dining section features a piece on Meraki, the off-the-radar place in Walker’s Point that offers menu items from the small (Bar Bites) to multi-course chef’s tasting affairs that include things you won’t get on any of the regular menus. You will want to investigate that further. For real.

From inside my world of talking to chefs (by phone only; I can’t meet them), I share some details about which cookbooks some local chefs are reading and how those books are inspiring their cooking. 

Last June, Milwaukee’s first cat cafe, Sip & Purr, opened just off Prospect Avenue. It’s a place for people who want to pet cats (and maybe adopt one), eat and drink or just find out what all the fuss is about without getting too close to the felines. You can even do cat yoga there.

We close out the segment with the upcoming five-course wine dinner at Movida and chef/author Michael Twitty’s talk at the Mitchell Street Library. The James Beard Award winner talks about the African-American influence on Southern foodways.

Listen to “Jan 11th – Five reasons to revisit Meraki, The Cat Cafe and more” on Spreaker.
