This week on the FoodCrush podcast, we’re talking to comfort food aficionados Laura Maigatter and Nathan Heck of Hot Dish Pantry, a brand which recently launched a brick and mortar location in the 3rd Street Market Hall.

Join us for a fun, insightful discussion about the origins of their business, the yin and yang that makes their partnership work, the infamous Minnesota hot dish and the secrets behind the creatively filled pierogi that have made Hot Dish Pantry such a popular stop at the new food hall.

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.
