Glaze opening in Chicago. +Phil Vettel has the details. +Chicago Tribune 
Chicago has hot-dog stands. New York has pizza-by-the-slice shops. In Seattle, the big deal is teriyaki; the city has dozens of fast-casual teriyaki shops. And now, Chicago can discover why they're so popular.

Big City Chicken opens at Navy Pier. +Chicago Tribune has a first look.
Big City Chicken, the fried chicken concept hatched by Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises and M Burger’s Chef Tim Hockett, opened today in Navy Pier’s food court, so I went to check it out at lunch. The food — crispy and moist chicken, skinny and golden fries — seemed to fly quickly for customers. My biggest squawks were the absence of trays to transport food from counter to table and that the root beer float promised on the very small menu wasn’t...

Taste of Chicago: +Judy Hevrdejs goes on a tasty tour for +Chicago Tribune 
When the first Taste of Chicago set up on a stretch of Michigan Avenue between Wacker Drive and Ohio Street 35 years ago, 36 food vendors showed up to dispense ribs, egg rolls, gyros and more. It was such a huge success, the event moved to Grant Park the next year drawing some "800,000 cast-iron digestive systems" to what the Chicago Tribune called "Chicago's gigantic civic picnic."

Minestrone. Daley Question. +Chicago Tribune 
Q: Many years ago (approximately 40 to 45 years), the Tribune published a recipe for minestrone soup. It was a large-quantity soup that required two days to make. I have not had any minestrone soup since that equaled your recipe and miss it. I would hope that you can find it for me and any other forgetful readers.

June is Gay Pride Month. LGBT books recommended by Chicago area LGBT authors. +Chicago Tribune Printers Row Journal.
LGBT pride should be exercised every day, of course, and not just in the month of June when so much attention is focused on big, splashy parades hosted by many cities. One year-round way to celebrate pride in being lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender is to open a book and read. Then open another book and read some more. Create, if you will, an LGBT book shelf of your very own. Get help building your collection with ideas from some of the LGBT ...

Eat this! +Leah Pickett suggests this blueberry peach pocket pastry in +Chicago Tribune 
An array of nostalgia treats tempt the taste buds at Fritz Pastry, the vegan-friendly bakeshop that recently moved to a new location in Lincoln Park, near the intersection of Lincoln and Webster avenues. But for those craving a frosted, fruit-filled pocket of memories, Fritz's vegan version of a Pop-Tarts pastry is the treat to beat. The warm and fulfilling pastries are far superior to the chalky, vaguely plastic-tasting Pop-Tarts sold in the pac...

Leftovers: From doggie bags to delicious new dishes. +Chicago Tribune 
Leftovers don't have to look or taste like leftovers anymore, listlessly plopped from doggie bag to plate with possibly a quick zap in the microwave. Smartly use those leavings, whether from restaurant meals or takeout chow to create something new and delicious. In so doing, you'll even be making your country proud.

Topolobampo "Art" menu reviewed by +Phil Vettel of +Chicago Tribune 
On some level, we all understand that food can trigger emotion, that certain tastes and aromas can exhilarate us, transport us, make us feel warm and nurtured. Dishes we group under "comfort food" aren't comforting in and of themselves, but in the way they return us to memories of when food meant security and love.
