Conde Nast Traveler "Global Tasting Tour" kicking off in Chicago on Sunday, October 27th
It isn't every day that my seven year-old son Brendan and I hang out at BellyQ with Chef Bill Kim. But that is how we are spending our Sunday night!
Our evening at BellyQ is part of the Global Tasting Tour, a week of once-in-a-lifetime dinners celebrating cuisines of the world. At each private dinner, leading chefs including Sarah Grueneberg, Bill Kim, and Ann Shovers will personally introduce the one-time-only menus along with inventive wine and spirits pairings, special ingredients, and a take-home gift. Each dinner is a private, ticketed event available solely to MasterCard holders.

The recipes in her book celebrate some of her husband's family favorites. Truly, this book is a celebration of the family meal.  Jennie cooks real, delicious food for her girls.
