Milwaukee's Chef Michael Feker Honors Local Mothers

Share Article

Studies and statistics show that fifty years ago, Americans spent approximately two hours preparing a meal: today they spend less than 27 minutes. 30 years ago, seven out of ten meals were made from scratch and today only three out of ten meals are made from scratch. Let’s analyze the reason: time; tools; ease of preparations; accessibility of ingredients are all different today; but Milwaukee's Chef Michael Feker, understanding all of the above, believes that one thing should not change: the heart and the passion that goes into each meal. His cause is to get you back to the table, whether his or yours is irrelevant. To entice you to get back to the table, Chef Feker is inviting one lucky, local mother to join him LIVE on his Saturday morning cooking show, Feker’s Kitchen.

"I want to know the stories and love that go in to your cherished recipes."

What comes from the heart penetrates the heart...
