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

This Bites, the culinary podcast on 88Nine Radio Milwaukee, has come out of the Polar Vortex unscathed. On this episode, Tarik Moody and I talk about where to get great soup ‒ from a story running in the February issue of Milwaukee Magazine. One of them is Soup Brothers in Walker’s Point, a place that may turn you into a red pepper bisque convert (it’s one of their most popular soups) or be on the lookout for Tarik’s favorite, Mario’s Bario stew.  

Local restaurants Amilinda, The Tandem and Tricklebee Cafe are teaming up for the Tables Across Borders food collaboration, a series of dinners highlighting chefs from refuge communities. The first is an Ethiopian dinner at Amilinda on Feb. 25. We’ll tell you more about this very cool series.   

This month, food historian and author Michael Twitty will be in Milwaukee, making several appearances. One of the events is the Taste of the South dinner on Feb. 19 at The Diplomat. The meal, served family style, will celebrate regional Southern foodways and feature a group of really interesting chefs and community cooks ‒ Dane Baldwin (co-owner of The Diplomat), Jarvis Williams of SURG Restaurant Group, Caitlin Cullen of The Tandem and Venice Williams of Alice’s Garden, to name a few. Part of the ticket proceeds will go to organizations like Fondy Food Market and Alice’s Garden.
