Sobremesa | Chicago


Join us for our Chicago edition of our Sobremesa Winter 2019, a global dinner series, hosted by Myndi Devore & Fran Knechel. Myndi and Fran share a love of cooking local, seasonal meals, feeding friends and family, and exploring Chicago’s restaurants (as well as raising young children, reading, exercising, and being married to attorneys named Charlie). They value the community that flows from preparing and sharing meals with friends. For more of Myndi’s work, follow her at @myndid and @readsandfeeds for Fran’s.

About the meal

This meal is inspired by harmony and balance in a winter season. When the elements are cold and intense outside, we turn inwards for warmth and comfort. This meal offers a delicate approach to balance. We seek foods that are nurturing and warming, but still delicate and graceful. We pair a rich meal with refreshing elements as an ode to the balance between light and dark.
