Here's a nice, random Milwaukee mention.
The Morning Call (mcall.com) toasts The Pfister Hotel in a travel story, syndicated from the Los Angeles Times, featuring popular egg dishes. It opens its segment calling Milwaukee "one of America's hottest food cities."
In a story titled "The best egg dishes at popular destinations across America" the site notes The Pfister's signature duck egg, meatballs and gnocchi dish at Café at The Pfister.
Here's the blurb:
"In what's becoming one of America's hottest food cities, Milwaukee shows off an unusual egg dish under the tutelage of chef Brian Frakes at the historic Pfister Hotel. His signature duck egg, meatballs and gnocchi dish at Café at The Pfister requires complex preparation: gently steeping basil stems in béchamel, crafting house-made meatballs, topping the dish with warm eggs sliced in half (soft side up) and drizzling with chorizo oil."
"Despite the complexity of this dish, it is surprisingly light because the pork in the meatballs and the soft-cooked egg pair beautifully," says Frakes. "The velvety yolk blended with the basil milk coat the gnocchi. Wipe the plate clean with some fresh crusty bread."
Themorningcall.com is, according to its media kit, "the leading news and information web site in The Lehigh Valley (Pennsylvania). The site is owned by the Tribune Company.
