Food notes from Chicago

A long weekend in the Windy City turned up deep dish pies and hot dogs galore, but the biggest thrill was at the Chicago Green City market in Lincoln Park, where we tasted Red Haven and Flaming Fury peaches, watched a chef demonstrate how to make bruschetta, bought Sungold tomatoes and itty-bitty blueberries for lunch, and marveled at the bounty of local meat and cheese, fruit and herbs, bread and pastry, vegetables, honey, and yes, even wheatgrass at this Midwestern market. Nearby, CC Board member Bruce Sherman runs North Pond restaurant, a spot known for its commitment to local growers–some of whom can be found at Green City.

    Why did the student eat his homework? The teacher told him it was a piece of cake.
