Smak + Jewel Osco.

You guys, I am giddy with excitement this morning. For the past three months I have been keeping some very exciting news on the DL. Not because I was forced to, but because I wasn't quite ready to share. But today that all changes! Jewel Osco Chi-Town Stories

Back at the beginning on October 2015 I teamed up with Jewel Osco to film a commercial segment for their Chi-Town Stories series. Filming all around Andersonville, we collaborated to create a love story to food, culture, heritage and tradition. While the full segment will not be released until March 2, 2016, I've been given permission to release a short promo spot.

Without further adieu....

It's been kind of crazy the last few days - watching myself in video form. It was definitely a stretch outside of my comfort zone at first. That being said, I loved being in front of the camera and telling my story. Who knows where this small step into the video world will lead?

I am thrilled to say that I will be bringing you exclusive content leading up to the official launch - recipes, stories, travel guides - it will all be here! Be sure to follow Smak all month-long and I lead up to the big day.

A huge thank you to all of my readers and supporters - this has been such an incredible ride. And thank you to Jewel Osco, Contend LA and the entire team that made this opportunity possible. It was a dream come true.
