DUCK DUCK GOAT
The brainchild of Stephanie Izard, winner of Top Chef season 2, and founder of the Girl and the Goat, and the Little Goat (both already iconic restaurants in Chicago), DUCK DUCK GOAT is modeled after Chinatown in the 40's. I swear I felt like I was a kid, back in San Francisco's Chinatown, entering a smoky, steamy and fragrant world of cuisine. From the funky floral smoked-stained wallpaper to the sepia-toned family and group photos and the paper lanterns hanging overhead, the ambience was decidedly authentic and the food, delicious. Check out a few photos I took inside, and I am determined to hack the MuShoo Pork and Crab Rangoon with Roasted Pineapple Sweet and Sour Sauce! If I succeed, I'll happily share with all of you!
I headed to Chicago on the 18th to discuss food allergy management and the latest research pertaining to early intervention of peanuts (in an effort to prevent peanut allergy in children). I attended the National Association of Nurse Practitioners Conference and had lots of face time with these professionals who hugely influence the lives of children and their families. Additionally, I broadcast on Facebook Live from the streets of the Windy City on Monday March 19; I discussed World Water Day, and what we can do to insure that future generations have access to clean healthy water. Here are a few photos from my previous trips to Chicago, just to whet your whistles! I'll have more (and granted, they'll be less sunny than these) when I return!
