As we’ve already reported, Adam Richman, known for his hosting duties and eating on "Man vs. Food" and appearances on "Amazing Eats" and "Iron Chef America," was in Milwaukee for the Brewers' homestand against Miami this weekend. He was taping segments for a new show called "Fandemonium."
In addition, Richman was at Three Bridges Park in the Menomonee River Valley just east of Miller Park, beneath the 35th and 27th Street Viaducts on Sunday July 21, between 3 and 8 p.m.
The episode will air on The Travel Channel in the near future, most likely August.
Richman tasted and filmed several fancentric menu items including Streetza Pizza’s Sausage Race Pizza. The food truck uses all five Klement’s racing sausages on a single pizza. The result, of course, is a unique and delicious Milwaukee-only treat.
All of the trucks created special menu items for the event. Proceeds from these menu items were donated to The American Cancer Society.
Many of the food trucks owners have lost someone special to cancer, including the mothers of Scott from Streetza and Katherine from Gouda Girls, and the father of Jackie from The Fast Foodie.
The special menu items were the Sausage Race Pizza from Streetza, gold and blue ribbon beer brat and sautéed pepper pita from American Euros, The Tailgater (slow roasted beef, topped with white cheddar cheese curds, crispy bacon, and homemade giardiniera from Beef-E’s), The Stadium Poncho from The Hardwood Café, The MVP GLOBACO (homemade versions of the first three inaugural sausages – bratwurst, Polish and Italian – mixed with potatoes seasoned with "Love Dust" spice mixture, some Frank's sauerkraut from Franksville and topped with some Schmitzhaus Sweet Heat whole grain mustard from Shorewood) from The Fast Foodie, and The Roma (roasted Roma tomatoes with parmesan, butter and Penzey's seasonings, topped with mozzarella and asiago cheese on Italian bread) from the Gouda Girls.
"We wanted to create an event that will draw as many fans and people passionate about food trucks and our sports teams so that we can show the nation just how "Fan-Tastic" Milwaukee is," said Streetza Pizza's Scott Baitinger.
Word is that Richman also stopped at 4th Base, Wisconsin Cheese Mart and The Loaded Slate, too.
