Hello. Welcome to my blog. This site is where I record my explorations around Chicago in search of good and interesting things. Much of my emphasis is on food for everyday enjoyment. Not only do I find it fun to check out new food shops, markets, artisans, and restaurants, but I also want to eat in a healthy way. So I seek out foods that are whole, natural, and made well, which usually means food that is local, made from scratch, and produced on site. For me, finding foods from new and favorite places is my way to savor meals and eat well.
My explorations don’t stop with food. I also like to find good and interesting things that add to the quality of everyday living. They might be useful finds for my kitchen or home, a well-designed item, or a business that makes things or gets things done.
So join me as I wander the city in search of distinctive foods—plus a few other interesting finds.
