Walking through the farm markets, talking to farmers and chefs, and writing about food helps us collect a lot of recipes. Look here to find recipes focused on what’s local in Chicago: Fresh salads made from green kale, amazing appetizers and side dishes made with Wisconsin cheese, and main courses with deliciously-raised beef, lamb, and more.
We like munching on something while we cook. Recipes for appetizers will help you set up for a dinner party, or pick a few and have tappas for dinner.
All summer long, it’s salads for us. Salads with leafy greens, salads that never see leafy greens, salads chocked with crunchy vegetables, salads topped with stuff that makes them fattening. We love salads.
From really tasty beef and lamb, to delicious poultry, and even vegetarian options (galore), we like to cook a delicious supper every once in a while. Explore some of our favorite main dishes with us and tell us what you cook for dinner.
Like dessert? So do we! Mix up some fresh, seasonal fruit with a bit of shortcake or some fresh-spun ice cream and that’s about all you need on a summer night.
