Ramen: +Chicago Tribune 's +Kevin Pang tells you where to get the best ramen bowls in the Chicago area.
Congratulations, fellow Chicagolanders! We have achieved peak ramen status and it only took, what, a decade? Doesn't it feel super? Perhaps you remember when the mere mention of ramen brought sneers from those whose noodle soup worldview stopped at 30-cents-a-bag Maruchan nuked in dorm room microwaves. And then, like hamburgers or fried chicken, food previously relegated to a lower caste, ramen in Chicago grew in respect and nobility. The broth ...

Graham cracker cake. One of the recipes sought by Daley Question readers in +Chicago Tribune 
Q: Thank you for your interest in forgotten recipes. I am seeking the recipe for the fabulous graham cracker cake from Heinemann's Bakery in Chicago. I have tried other recipes which have tried to replicate this cake but IMHO they don't succeed.

Mint cookie recipe. this week's Daley Question in +Chicago Tribune 
Q: My grandmother used to make a drop cookie (back in the '50s and '60s) that had a mint wafer in it and a walnut half on top. The walnut may have been her addition, not sure. They were made with Rockwood mint wafers and may have been called Mint Surprise. Are the wafers still available and could you find the recipe?

The super cute small heads of baby bok choy lay on the cutting board, asking to be made into something, but what?

+Kevin Pang writes in +Chicago Tribune 
The 2015 NFL Draft will be held in Chicago, and as part of the three-day event April 30-May 2, a section of Grant Park will be turned into a music and food festival that's billed to be "the size of more than 15 football fields."

Wolfgang Puck's old-fashioned chocolate pudding. +Chicago Tribune 
In many parts of the country, we're just a few weeks away from school letting out for summer. The season itself less than six weeks away, and we're only a week and a half from Memorial Day weekend, which many people consider the unofficial start of summer. So it's not surprising that many parents (as well as people who may have no kids at home but still like to pamper their inner children) are starting to think about fun cooking activities making...

Congee — it’s not just for breakfast anymore. Chefs are spooning up the comforting rice porridge all kinds of ways at brunch, lunch and dinner too.

Mme. Pommery: This month's Culinary Giant in +Chicago Tribune 
Raise a toast to Madame Pommery next time you have something sparkling in the glass. For it was she, one of the great Champagne widows of the 19th century, who steered the world's taste in sparkling wine from sweet to drier styles — a preference that stuck.

Miso. +Laura Levy Shatkin writes for +Chicago Tribune 
My taste buds hop to attention when a tiny lacquer bowl is set down prior to our favorite Japanese meal. It's delicate and soul satisfying miso soup, familiar yet mysterious. The earthy salty flavor has complexity I've long appreciated.
