Milwaukee Kitchen Season Two Ep 06 Salad Days by Paul Druecke

Recently described as “the only surrealist cooking show in the world.” In the SEASON TWO premier, Penita does a quick tally. Old School, New School, our love of pudding runs deep. Postal workers, fairies, a sweet, complicated tune. “Where does the definition of salad end?” ChefD wonders.

We hope you enjoy! We hope you subscribe to MK's youtube channel. Please share your thoughts, there or here. More backstory on our FB page.
