Wolf Peach MKEfoodies event

On Tuesday night, Karis, Molly, Abby and I went to the MKEfoodies event at Wolf Peach. Wondering what Wolf Peach means? It's a reference to the fact that throughout northern Europe, the tomato was thought to be poisonous. German folklore associates the nightshade plant with witches and werewolves, which gives a scientific name that translates to "Wolf Peach."

The restaurant was formerly Roots and I had been there once before with Karis. Executive Chef Dan Jacobs was the chef at Roots and like 90% of the staff working at Wolf Peach, he still continues his role.

All proceeds from the night went to The Gathering, an organization that feeds the hungry through preserving donated produce from area farms. 

I love ciders, so I was happy to find a new-to-me cider on their menu, Ace Cider out of Sonoma, CA. I ordered a Perry and it was perfect--not too sweet. I definitely want to see if I can find these in the store (sadly, I checked and it isn't sold in my area).

We sat downstairs for the event, but the upstairs was very pretty and inviting.

We started with various types of breads and house-made charcuterie. 

Many of the wood-fired pizzas that were brought out were vegetarian, which made Karis, Abby and I very happy! 

There were a few giveaways throughout the night and I was so excited when my number was called and I won a $50 gift card to the restaurant! I can't wait to take Craig there in the future and sit out on the patio on a nice summer day.

I'm looking forward to eating delicious food at my next visit to Wolf Peach and to seeing these gorgeous views of downtown Milwaukee again.
