Join us at the rustic event venue Dandy for a mouthwatering evening of conversation and cuisine, curated by Radio Milwaukee’s food podcast “This Bites” and hosted by Tarik Moody. We’ll kick things off with culinary historian, barbecue judge, and James Beard Award winner Adrian Miller (featured in the Netflix series High on the Hog) discussing the rich culture of Black barbecuers, pitmasters, and restauranteurs throughout our nation’s history. Follow that up with our main course - a one-of-a-kind culinary event featuring two chefs from different backgrounds (Jason Alston, founder of Heaven’s Table Barbecue and Alex Hanesakda, founder of SapSap in Racine) coming together to create a unique menu bridging African American and Laotian cultures into a wonderful barbecue feast they’ve titled “Soul P’hunk.” This very special event will nourish your mind, body, and soul!
