Chicago, divided by BBQ 15 MIN, 24 SEC

The South Side of Chicago lays claim to the city’s most distinctive and important barbecue. Hallmarks of the style include smoked rib tips and hot links. However, half of the city barely knows these dishes exist in the community. Food writer Kevin Pang recently wrote an article for Saveur Magazine examining why that is.

Paula Wolfert is 'Unforgettable' 12 MIN, 28 SEC

Paula Wolfert has been awarded the prestigious Lifetime Achievement honor from the James Beard Foundation. Wolfert never had a restaurant or television show, but her eight seminal cookbooks that were published over nearly four decades influenced much of what we eat today.

In 2013, Wolfert was diagnosed with dementia, which prompted writer Emily Thelin to document her life and legacy. “Unforgettable” is Thelin’s biography of Wolfert, and it recently won the “Best Cookbook in Literary Fiction” award from the International Association of Culinary Professionals.
