We've also launched an off-shoot of the series featuring local chefs cooking up simple dishes in their home or restaurant kitchens.

On Friday, June 5 at 1 p.m. we filmed our live with Chef Gregory Leon of Amilinda, 315 E. Wisconsin Ave., who demonstrated how to make Spanish chorizo and piquillo pepper custard tarts. He also offered up numerous tips for making the tart crust, eliminating bubbles in the custard and more.

In case you missed the episode, you can watch it now.

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.
