·1 min read

Welcome to The Oklahoman's food newsletter. Each week we'll rush you the latest headlines from across the 405 diningscape.

This week, we take a look at Leap Coffee Roasters and its program supporting local artists while giving the Oklahomans an original cup of joe inspired by Kenya, Ethiopia and Peru.

We also cover the opening of Birdie's Fried Chicken, the first original concept from chef Kevin Lee, who partially funded the venture with winning from Food Network competitions.
