How to Make an Authentic Chicago Style Hot Dog

23 Jul , 2013  

Chicago style hot dogI grew up in Chicago, and I have a few favorite hot dog joints I often visit. They all have a few things in common, although each place varies just a bit. I will give you the basic Chicago hot dog recipe, and also a few variations, including the often requested Maxwell Street Polish recipe.

Before I explain the differences, I want to explain what exactly it is that qualifies a hot dog to carry the “Chicago” name.

Cooking With White Wine

23 Jul , 2013  

cooking with white wineThe combination of wine and food is hundreds of thousands of years old. The ancient Egyptians were the first to team their opulently produced wines with equally opulent dishes and the trend has never really disappeared. Different wines taste great with different types of food and the same goes for cooking using wine – not all wines will complement all dishes. For example, white wine and red wine are very different in flavour and form. The recipes that taste great cooked in red wine are not the same recipes that taste great when cooked with white.
