We’re Peef and Lo – two devoted Milwaukeeans who share a passion for seasonal cooking, local eating, writing, and entertaining.
We started a food blog called Burp! in 2007 as a way to keep track of all the recipes we were cooking up in the kitchen. Three years later, our whim has evolved into a full-time hobby. Although we gain inspiration from any number of places (including many of the links included here on Tumblr), nearly all the recipes on our blog are originals.
Our core beliefs revolve around the creation of real food that nourishes both the body and the soul. So, we focus on cooking with local, sustainably raised, and organic food whenever possible. We haunt farmer’s markets in the summer, store up local goods for the winter, and befriend local farmers, restaurateurs, and food artisans every chance we get. We also believe in cooking real food. Whole food. Food that some might call “inconvenient”. We believe that every good thing takes effort.
Our cooking is in a constant state of evolution. We are always learning, discovering new flavor combinations, and experiencing new things. And we love a good challenge! When we’re not in the kitchen, you’ll find us reading blogs, sharing ideas with other foodies, and finding any number of ways to keep our brains and techniques sharp.
In real life, we hold down real jobs in the fields of sales & marketing. We spend our free time flipping through cookbooks, tending our urban garden, and making whimsical birthday cakes for our nieces and nephews.
This is where we share random thoughts, inspiration, and ideas.
