Sobremesa | Chicago


Join us for our Chicago edition of our Sobremesa Fall 2018, 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 the earth and the processes of fermentation and natural aging.

Fall is one of our favorite season and connects us back to the earth. As the season shifts, the color palette mutes and darkens to deep, warm hues. We turn inward, move at a slower pace and look for comfort. Spending more times indoors, we gather around the table with the ones we love. We prepare foods you want to share.
