"Mad Mike's" mobile kitchen

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-- A man who works with some of the most dangerous criminals in the area, is also a pretty good cook. 

"Mad" Mike Mathisen has been featured on national television for his award winning jams, jellies and sausages.

He brought his mobile kitchen to our studios this morning.

During the day Mike is a kitchen food manager at the Two Rivers Correctional Institute in Hermiston, but on his spare time he frequents farmers markets, sets up and starts cooking. 

He prides himself in using only local foods. 

"I live in the community, I know the people who raise the goods that grow the product, and they really become like family towards you," says Mike Mathisen.
