Your Cart is Empty

Last week, Kristin and I spent the weekend in Chicago. We were in town for the International Housewares Show, but couldn’t resist stopping by Eataly.

Comprised of 63,000 square feet, this behemoth of a grocery store is a sight to behold. The sprawling complex is a food lover’s paradise. With over twenty dining options and dozens of aisles of groceries, the shopping experience at Eataly is simply wonderful.

Butter at Eataly ChicagoThis Chicago location (the second in the U.S.) has a couple of new, unique features – a Nutella bar, La Birreria that serves beer brewed on-site and even a wine bar featuring barrels of vino, where you can grab a glass to sip while you shop.

We decided to grab two seats at one of the bars in La Piazza and sampled a beautiful array of Italian cheeses (the taleggio was my favorite) and small plates. The space felt open and relaxing. Perhaps it was the Midwestern charm or the glasses of Bastianich wine we imbibed, but our experience at Eataly Chicago seemed somewhat less frenzied than our visit to it’s East coast cousin.

I only wish that our trip coincided with their Urbani truffle pop-up bar…

The Chef Series: Silvia Baldini

There’s not much Silvia doesn’t do – a former high-powered art director in NYC, she’s now a local chef, entrepreneur, super mom and all-around #girlboss. Did I mention she won Chopped with “the best dessert on this show ever”? Needless to say, we were thrilled she agreed to be featured in the second installment of our Chef Series!

Red Dot Awards Ceremony & Gala

by Jojo Frey July 12, 2017

I headed into the Designer's Night party at the Red Dot Museum in search of Churncraft. Words can't describe how exciting it was to turn the corner and see our Churncraft butter churn beautifully displayed in the culinary section of the "Living" exhibit. Nestled in between Cuisinart and Breville, our butter churn stood out as one of the most beautiful and unique products there.
