It's time for Dining Month, presented by Deer District and its spooky Halloween-themed alter ego, Fear District. Throughout the month of October, we'll be serving up fun and fascinating content about all things food. The signature dish, however, is our 2019 Best of Dining poll, who's winners we will dish out all month long. Get hungry, Milwaukee! 

What do chefs shop for at local markets? That's the question we're exploring in this new video series in which we give chefs $50 to spend at area grocers and farmers markets. 

This week, we  took a  trip to  Glorioso's Italian Market with Chef Adam Pawlak of Egg & Flour to seek out great  ingredients for an Italian dinner. Watch as  we navigate the aisles and chat about ingredients – from produce and cheese to wine – that can be used to create great Italian dishes at home.
