Each week on Radio Milwaukee, Milwaukee Magazine dining critic Ann Christenson and 88Nine’s resident foodie Tarik Moody discuss Milwaukee’s culinary and restaurant culture on This Bites.

On this week’s edition of Milwaukee’s longest running culinary podcast, we’re talking about Ann’s story about how to order directly from farmer’s online, as well as a new Palestinian bakery, a collaboration between SapSap and Iron Grate BBQ, and an update on the Bartolotta steakhouse Mr. B’s.

There’s a new Palestinian bakery and restaurant called Taqwa’s at 4651 S. 27th St. in Greenfield.

The bread is made from owner Taqwa Obaid’s mother’s recipe. The restaurant serves many other dishes, including shish kabob and lamb chops. They even have Middle Eastern breakfast items, and the bread comes baked to order. In addition to soups and salads, they have appetizers including kibbeh and hummus.

Farmers bring markets online

Ann wrote a piece called “How Some Wisconsin Farmer’s Are Making Shopping Available Online,” which looks at options for consumers who may not be comfortable going to farmer’s markets right now. One Racine farm called Avrom, for instance, has created a store where consumers can order watermelons, sweet peppers, Korean-style short ribs, small chickens, potatoes, bacon and more. You can have it delivered right to your doorsteps. Milwaukee Farmers United, meanwhile, has an online market that aggregates products from multiple farms. Unlike CSAs, this isn’t a membership service.

‘This is kind of what I think will be the wave of the future for farms,” Ann says.

Hear us talk about all of that and more, including an app that uses artificial intelligence to help you cook a meal with whatever you have in your pantry, on this week’s episode below.
