Milwaukee will be featured Wednesday on an episode of the Cooking Channel’s "Cheap Eats," a show focused on the adventures of host Ali Khan as he eats his way through a city spending just $35.
The episode, which is slated to air on Wednesday, Sept. 13 at 9 p.m., is entitled "Brew Town? Food Town," and will feature dishes from a number of local restaurants.
Here’s a teaser of the episode, which will include stops at Blue’s Egg for breakfast, Hello Falafel for lunch and Lakefront Brewery for dinner. He’ll also stop over at Drink Wisconsinbly Pub for a snack of deep-fried Oreo cookies.
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.
