Last spring, we sat down with Sarah and Zak Baker, the husband and wife team behind Ca’Lucchenzo Pastificio & Enoteca, a West Side mecca for housemade pasta and regional Italian dishes. Our conversation centered around their culinary backgrounds and the experiences that made opening their own restaurant possible. [Find that episode here.]
But we promised to bring them back to chat about the delicious food that they serve. And this week, we did just that. Listen in for the story of how the Bakers fell in love with Italy and Italian cuisine and the magic that makes the fare at Ca’Lucchenzo so remarkable.

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.
