Since I've stopped posting to my 'regular' blog, I was thinking of starting something new. Also, I've become somewhat more food-focused over the past few years, between a minor craft beer addiction and my love for cooking on the grill.
My hope is this will become a very informal Chicago based group blog focused on food & drink (not necessarily all alcoholic). No Google ads and no begging for pageviews. No shakedowns for free meals, either.
Why Drinking + Eating? Well, mostly it's because the domain was available :). I also think that the drinks that go with a meal, or occationally instead of a meal, are important. As much as I am a beer guy, I love a well made cocktail.
As a start, here are a few food pictures I've taken over the past few years.
Chorizo Burger I made last fall.
Here are a couple of pictures from Baconfest Chicago:
Pork belly & waffle
Bacon beer, and yes it was very good.
Bacon & Egg
Here's about the favorite thing I came up with in the past few years, a quesadilla burger, where two mini bacon & cheese quesadillas are the buns.
