Last week ended my series “Food for Thought”. I spent a month being inspired by like-minded folks, those who took their passions for food and created thriving successful business enterprises. I was so inspired by each of them, and we ended the month with a bang! Thanks to each of you for helping me to do what I do.

I thank you so much Chef Michael Feker of Il Mito restaurant in Milwaukee, who strives to get his guests to the table through his kitchen. I wish I was closer to him, those of you in that area, stop by! He blessed us with his wit and style, and graced us with his wisdom. He says we all speak food, just with different dialects and accents. We manifest our love through food to fed our culinary souls. He sees cooking as art, and desires to feed his spiritual bank account, knowing the financial feeding will follow as he lives his passion. And he admonished us to find time to eat healthy now, or make time to be sick later. You gotta love this man! Find him on Facebook, Chef Michael Feker, and check out on the web.
