Supper Club write up in the Chicago Reader


I’m giggly excited about the Chicago Reader write up about the Supper Club that my husband are I are involved in. Our group met a year ago on a mushroom foraging trip lead by Iliana Regan of Elizabeth restaurant. We’re a bunch of people who love cooking, eating good food, and genuinely enjoy each other’s company. Since the beginning, the supper club themes varied (Ancient Roman, Viking, Victorian, Mesopotamia, Iron Chef: Sardine, etc.) and the food increasingly continues to improve due to newly learned techniques.

Additional pictures along with menus to the various themes are on our official Sup Club website.

Ciao Chow!

FOODILY: “Food I love you”

Since we got our iPad, we have been finding new food related apps and websites that are useful. So far, my favorite recipe website has been FOODILY. After typing in an ingredient into the search bar, it pulls recipes from the bazillion food sites on the web and includes a picture and the source it came from. Then you can quickly scroll through the recipes and save them while you search. Another useful feature is customizing your search by including or excluding recipes with a specific ingredient. Sharing via Facebook and email is super easy as well. It’s smart, concise, colorful, and my new one and only recipe search tool!

Here’s a bonus tip: For a new way to quickly read a lot of information within a short amount of time, download the Pulse app to your phone or iPad. It changed the way I read my news every morning. Pulse takes your favorite websites and transforms them into a colorful mosaic. The app also makes it easy to share stories via email as well as Facebook, Twitter, etc.  Happy reading!
