’Tis Dining Month, the tastiest time of year! This means we’re dishing up fun and fascinating food content throughout October. Dig in, Milwaukee! OnMilwaukee Dining Month is served up by Potawatomi Hotel & Casino and Wollersheim Winery & Distillery.

If you’ve been to Dandan or EsterEv, you’ve likely eaten food prepared by Chefs Daniel Jacobs and Dan Van Rite. And if you have, you know the level at which they’ve worked to bring their takes on Chinese-American and fine dining cuisine to the proverbial table.

But how did the two chefs end up working together? What’s the yin and yang that makes them click? What’s the secret behind their fantastic Peking Duck? And what are their favorite dishes at the restaurant? We’ll answer all those questions and more in this week’s FoodCrush Podcast.

For more from Jacobs and Van Rite, tune into our FoodCrush conversation about the use of the word "authentic" with reference to food:
It might be time to give up the quest for "authentic" food: A chat with Daniel Jacobs and Dan Van Rite

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.
