This is not my usual fare, I know. But I was in the Chicago area this weekend to celebrate the upcoming grand opening of my daughter and her family’s new business. They held a private opening for family and friends, which we were fortunate to be able to attend. The french doors in the back of the show room open to a state-of-the-art kitchen where their chef will give cooking classes and more. The place is beautiful and my kids have done it all. They took a large, empty store front space and turned it into this! Many years in the making but finally they are seeing their dream come to fruition. If you are in the Chicago area (northwestern suburbs, Palatine to be exact) drop in and see them, book a party, or purchase some really cool and useful kitchen utensils and gadgets. Needless to say, I am proud of Mica, John and Jacob!
