About Jeanette Hurt

Award-winning author Jeanette Hurt explores culture through the lens of food and drink. Whether she’s delving into the history of the whiskey sour, developing healthy yet tasty cauliflower recipes or biking through the back roads of the Loire Valley, Jeanette takes readers on a delicious journey that inspires them to create a good life. She is a regular contributor to Forbes.com, and she writes for dozens of publications about food, drink and travel, including Forbes, theKitchn, HuffPo, HOTELS, The Four Seasons Magazine, Wine Enthusiast, and Esquire.com. When she’s not writing, developing recipes or traveling, she teaches food, drink and writing classes. She lives in Wisconsin with her family, and she often can be entertaining guests at her backyard tiki bar or hiking in the woods, with her husband, their son and their Chihuahua-Great Pyrenees rescue. Check out her latest book Wisconsin Cocktails. 

About The Estate 

The Estate, formerly Jazz Estate, has been a vital part of the neighborhood for over 40 years.  Unassuming and intimate, the space feels like the neighborhood cocktail joint of your dreams – unassuming, comfortable, and full of history, stories, and beautiful nights spent with friends.  The venue has played many roles through the years: a tiny dive bar, a nationally recognized jazz club, and a cocktail lounge that serves some of the best cocktails in Milwaukee.  Many of the best musicians in Milwaukee got their start at The Estate and many of the best bartenders in town have been stationed behind our bar.
