I was recently the guest co-host on You and Me This Morning on WCIU. We had a fun segment with Eric Steiglman, founder of Bonfire wines. He brought along some a red and white wine and delicious bites for a summer picnic in Chicago. Check it out! Notes: Wine from Bonfire, sold at Whole Foods and Mariano’s. American Spoon and “Q” BBQ sauce, sold at Blue Door Farm stand in Lincoln Park. Goddess and Grocer sell a variety of delicious prepared foods. Urban Accents is a local Grocery store. Magnolia Bakery is in Chicago. I hope you enjoy all of these local foods for the summer!
