Karen is very picky about ingredients. Only the finest components are allowed anywhere near any of her food creations. I’m glad for this because I know just about everything she creates is going to be delicious and worth eating every bite. Not necessarily the most “healthy”, as some define healthy, but always very tasty and very fresh. When available, Karen prefers organic produce, grass-fed beef, free range chicken and hormone free milk, eggs and butter.
The Chicago Green City Market is “Chicago’s only year-round farmers’ market promoting local, sustainable farmers, producers and chefs by connecting them to the public through educational programming and special events.” You just can’t get ingredients like these at your local grocery, but you can get them at the Chicago Green Market. And if you go early on a Saturday morning, like we did, you avoid heavy traffic and crowds.
