Here it comes! Seats to my next Pop Up in Chicago is up for grabs! . . Valentine's Day will have come and gone, but that doesn't mean your heated romance (with food) has to stop. Don't expect pink hearts and roses though. Expect adventure, offals and lots of Fire! We're going to pair each course with a unique homemade Hot Sauce! 4 courses, signature cocktails all night and a whole lotta heat!
#Chicago, come out this Sunday, 1/28; for my first Pop Up in the Windy City! 5 courses, secret Speakeasy Venue, intimate group of Food lovers and some damn good food! It’s the perfect way to spend your Sunday afternoon! Link in Bio. Spread the word to fellow #chicagofoodies
What an amazing way to end my week at @beardfoundation James Beard House! I lucked out in that being around the best Chefs, rounded off my week. Chefs @chefsamcarroll and @cody_carroll and their team from @sacalaitnola cooked the best #cajunfood, shared their stories and recipes and showed me that even famous Chefs can be humble and kind and nurturing. Can’t wait to see them all again the next time I’m in New Orleans. #fangirlforlife
What a night at @beardfoundation the James Beard House tonight! The kitchen was packed with some amazingly talented chefs who cooked some fabulous food around the #Charcuterie theme! All the Charcuterie was courtesy of @newenglandcharcuterie and Chefs @chefmarcusware, @lyssago12, @smokinggoosemeatery, @chefbroth and many others brought their talent to the table. It was such an amazing experience to learn from them all and I’m eager to visit @moodysbackroom the next time I’m in Boston.
Tonight’s dinner at @beardfoundation the James Beard House just took it over the top! What an amazing group of Chefs led by Chef Lou Rossi of @castlehillinn! They were on their ‘A’ game, super organized, calm, cool and collected and their food was just fabulous! Seeing so many great female chefs in the kitchen was very inspiring and I’m so happy to have been part of the evening with these fine people!
#WintersBounty is a menu that combines the best of what the season has to offer, with inspiration drawn from my recent experience as receipt of the #jamesbeardfoundation #womeninculinaryleadership scholarship! Join me on January 28th for an intimate lunch at a secret Chicago Speakeasy! This five course menu is definitely the way you want to spend your Sunday! Tickets are limited so grab yours before they sell out! **Link in Profile**
Meet Murphy. He acts coy but don’t let those sheepish eyes fool you!
Very excited to host my first Pop Up in #Chicago on January 28! Winter’s Bounty is a menu inspired by the last three months of work I’ve done, in my role in the Women’s Culinary Leadership Program through the James Beard Foundation! Using locally sourced ingredients is something I fiercely support and this menu will showcase the bounty that the mid-west geography has to offer. Buy your tickets today, they won’t last! **Link in Profile**
After one too many Whiskey cocktails, you let your Saturday night take you wherever it may. #mykindofbootycall #chefslife #postshiftshenanigans #foodshare #foodandwine #chicagoeats #chicagofoodmag #chicagobites #thingstodoinchicago #fabfoodchicago #chicagopulse #femalechefs #cheflife #cheflife #girlpower #womeninfood #culinaryleadership #lovewhatyoudo #careerchange #liveyourdreams #honoryourcraft #chefstable #popupdining #chicagochef #thisismyfood #feedfeed #eatwith #foodporn #instafood #tastingtable
