Netflix’s ‘High on the Hog’ Will Have a Lasting Impact on Food TV

The format may feel familiar to fans of other Netflix food shows, but make no mistake, High on the Hog is doing something different.

Harris visit the Cemetery of Slaves, the memorial marking the mass grave of West Africans who died in captivity before they could be put on ships bound for the Americas. It’s the survivors of that journey, and their resilience as exemplified through innumerable contributions to American...

How to Grill Summer Fruits and Vegetables

I spend all year daydreaming about summer. More specifically, I daydream about throwing an entire farmers market’s worth of produce onto a flaming grill. I know what you’re thinking: What about burgers and hot dogs? Alas, thanks to legions of soggy bell pepper-zucchini skewers and undercooked slabs of eggplant, grilled vegetables tend to be a tough sell among the meat-eating crowd — woe to the marinated portobello that dares to compete with a rack of pork ribs. And that’s a shame, because a few smart techniques can make charred cabbage just as craveable as...

It’s Pride and barbecue season, sweeties, which means it’s time for a rainbow spread of grilled veggies and a rack of baby backs. But for me it’s the sauce.

Illinois Restaurants and Bars Fully Reopen After 15 Grueling Months

It’s been 450 days since Chicago’s restaurants and bars have been able to operate without customers wearing masks and tables spaced six feet apart. In the time since COVID-19 emerged and Gov. J.B. Pritzker first announced the suspension of indoor dining in March 2020, Chicago’s hospitality industry quickly adjusted with changing policies as health experts relayed new information about the disease that’s killed nearly 11,000 in Cook County. The threat of tragedy caused conflicting emotions between customers, restaurant owners, and workers. This has all led up to Friday — barflies can now freely pull...
