Martha and some looker doing what we love to do – drink Champagne.
While we adored commenting on the JB Awards this past Spring, we are terribly sad that we weren’t invited to Chefs & Champagne. Martha Stewart’s blog about the affair has me crying in my poor man’s mocha this AM (to those not in the know, that’s Swiss Miss + coffee) about missing it – it was all champagnes and wines and some tent and then you’re kinda near the beach! Oh, James Beard Foundation, please don’t forget us again!
In my excitement over the Beard awards tonight, I was looking through other events the Foundation has coming up. One caught my eye:
Italian Chic: Todd Stein Cibo Matto at the Wit Hotel/ Chicago
“Cibo Matto: One sexy restaurant in one sexy hotel has single-handedly revived the Loop,” wrote Chicago magazine food editor Penny Pollack. Headed by chef Todd Stein, an alum of David Burke Las Vegas, Cibo Matto offers in-the-know diners what Chicago Tribune critic Phil Vettel described as “sophisticated, traditional-with-a-twist Italian food.”
Naturally, I thought of the 90s girl group Cibo Matto. I guess that’s not what they’re talking about, but it reminded me that the girls *did* have that “Know Your Chicken” song. I know my chicken. You got to know your chicken.
