You had me at food. But lets get real - books are pretty rad too. Put the two together, and what could be better? Food Book Club is sponsored by two of your favorites - Slow Food Chicago and Graze Magazine. And to sweeten the deal, this summer reading happening will be hosted at Beermiscous. So come on out, buy a drink, bring a snack to nosh and share, and feast your eyes on a host of food inspired works curated by the good folks at Graze. Planned readings include :
- "Chicken of the Trees" by Mike Sula of the Chicago Reader
- "A Toast Story" by John Gravois of Pacific Standard
- "Old School" by Cynthia C. Scott of Graze
- "The Empanada Theory" by Lauren Clem of Graze
- "The Quinoa Quarrel" by Lisa M. Hamilton of Harper's
So skim it, pour over it, read it on your morning commute (sorry, Cliff Notes not an option). No matter how you dive in to one or all of these readings - you're gonna wanna mix and mingle with your fellow foodie readers on the 14th. You've got a week. Get that park blanket warmed up.
