Stuff We Missed looks to other Milwaukee publications (and beyond) for, well, stuff we missed throughout the week. This week: more Milwaukee food on TV!

• In case you did the impossible and missed it, Milwaukee is front and center on the new season of Top Chef. Yes, season 21 of the long-running Bravo show was not only shot in Milwaukee and Wisconsin, but features Milwaukee chef Dan Jacobs as one of the contestants. Want to keep up with the action? Check out our weekly recaps HERE. (And yes, Charlie Berens totally showed up in episode 2.)

And hey! If you’re looking for even MORE of Milwaukee’s fantastic food scene on television, check out Egg & Flour Chef Adam Pawlak on an upcoming episode of the Food Network’s Beat Bobby Flay! Pawlak—no stranger to television—dropped the big news on Friday:

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT! Hello world!!! I am extremely excited to announce I will be competing against the one and only Bobby Flay on the Food Network! Tune in on April 11th @ 8pm to see if I can make it through the 1st round and get a chance at the man himself! PLUS: There will be some incredible celebrity judges and personalities on my episode…don’t miss it!
