Matthew Baier, of Potawatomi Hotel & Casino’s Dream Dance Steak, is moving on from his position to join the culinary team at Sendik’s Food Markets.
Baier, who has worked with the casino for the past 10 years, was promoted to oversight of the Dream Dance Steak kitchen in 2011. Before that, he served as lead chef and sous chef at the restaurant as well as lead chef at RuYi, the casino's full-service Asian restaurant.
Baier’s departure comes on the heels of Potawatomi Executive Chef Peter Gebauer’s move to Sendik’s this past June.
Lori is an avid cook whose accrual of condiments and spices is rivaled only by her cookbook collection. Her passion for the culinary industry was birthed while balancing A&W root beer mugs as a teenage carhop, fed by insatiable curiosity and fueled by the people whose stories entwine with each and every dish. She’s had the privilege of chronicling these tales via numerous media, including OnMilwaukee and in her book “Milwaukee Food.” Her work has garnered journalism awards from entities including the Milwaukee Press Club.
When she’s not eating, photographing food, writing or recording the FoodCrush podcast, you’ll find Lori seeking out adventures with her husband Paul, traveling, cooking, reading, learning, snuggling with her cats and looking for ways to make a difference.
