Milwaukee's ‘Tables Across Borders’ returns to highlight refugee chefs
On this week’s edition, we’re talking about the return of a dinner series which highlights refugee chefs, a new Korean restaurant, a bake sale to benefit Ukraine and upcoming cooking classes at Glorioso's.
The dinner series that highlights and support refugee chefs known as “Tables Across Borders” has returned and will be hosted at Amilinda, Tricklebee Cafe and Lazy Susan beginning April 4. Several cuisines will be featured including Karen, Ethiopian, Afghan, Burmese, Somali and Rohingya. 100% of the tickets sales go directly to the refugee chefs and their families. Tickets are on sale now.
New Korean restaurant
With very little fanfare, a new family-owned Korean restaurant popped up in the former space of Maru sushi and Kanpai 2 called Maru Korean Bistro. The restaurant serves several traditional Korean dishes like scallion pancakes, Bibimbap, Budae Jigae and Bulgogi. They are open for lunch and dinner during the week and dinner only on Saturdays.
Bake for Ukraine MKE
Milwaukee Magazine shared details on the benefit Bake for Ukraine MKE. The benefit is organized by organized by pastry chef Sarah Mironczuk. #BakeforUkraine is an international effort to make cookies, not war. As one of the world's largest exporters of wheat, Ukraine is truly the bread basket of the world, which makes this benefit particularly meaningful for us bakers. Bake for Ukraine MKE is taking orders now (until they sell out) for pickup on two dates – Thursday, April 7 and Saturday, April 9. You can find more details and place your orders here.
