Let’s face it: not every dish that comes out of our kitchens is Michelin star worthy, and sometimes, dishes blow up in our faces. On Food Friday, we look at some common cooking fails, and how we can learn from our mistakes in the kitchen. We also discuss a proposal being considered in the Milwaukee Common Council that would create harsher penalties for people who solicit sex in the city. And we hear about how historians and Hollywood have come to rely on Baraboo’s Circus World for accurate information about circus history.
