Full Episode – We go to Ardent for some dishes in small portions with huge flavors, then stick around as it turns into Red Light Ramen.
This week, we visit Ardent in Milwaukee, WI. Chef Justin Carlisle shows us his philosophy on great food in a personal setting. Justin sources his ingredients all from local producers, including his family’s farm. We stop by Carlisle Farms to see how his father raises his beef and hear some stories of Justin’s upbringing on the farm. Then on our way back to Milwaukee, we stop by Craig’s Meats in Mindoro, WI. Then we drop in for a meal at Ardent in Milwaukee, WI. After hours, Ardent shuts down and reopens as Red Light Ramen. We see how ramen can be so much more than a cheap packet of flavored broth.
