I’m not a procrastinator; most people know I get shit done. However, for the past two years I’ve been talking about writing a blog about all the crazy grocery stores I drive all over Chicago to find. With all the overeating that’s going to be happening over the holidays, I thought this is as good of a time as any to tell you where you should really be buying your chocolate-filled advent calendars, oysters and fig jam from.
I love food. But it’s beyond that. I love GOOD food. I’m first generation American and all that crusty bread, cured sausages and rosehip jam I took for granted as a kid has helped me be a great entertainer and cook. I love an adventure. There’s a grocery store where I can’t understand any of the window signage? I’m in. Finally, I love a great deal. I’m not cheap – I will pay for good quality. I really enjoy finding that $6.98 bottle of Castano (watch for an upcoming post) when you paid $10 for it at Binny’s.
Hope you enjoy all that’s to come.
