What's your favorite restaurant in the world, where is it, and what makes it so wonderful?

Italy for the wine, rolling hills, and food food and food!

Have you ever dreamed of creating your own cookbook? What would your focus be?

Living in Portland, Oregon for two years was the best. So much to do outdoors and my husband and I made it goal to not eat at any chains which are in abundance in the Chicago suburbs. Rather we vowed to support the independent restaurants and we fell in love with this town's variety of food and amazing service.

We love writers, photographers and artists who love food! Are you interesed in helping us publish our blog and magazine?

Still new to the Chicago scene but we have enjoyed desserts at Hot Chocolate. Mindy Seagal's desserts are rich but I like her combinations and enjoyed the fact that she was seating people late on a Saturday night. No wonder she has been nominated (and finally won) so many times for the James Beard award!

Introduction

I have worked at two colleges with culinary programs and my sister is a pastry chef. It all inspires me to cook for fun and eat better!
