Do you know Jacked Kitchen? If you don't, get acquainted! Amy Biedenharn, the home chef behind the food blog, is also one of my favorite people! I know Amy from competing way back when on the gymnastics team at Illinois State. In college Amy was obviously a way better cook than I could ever dream, even for college standards. Over the years, Amy has honed her culinary approach and strives to make home cooking attainable even for the most kitchen-challenged [me]!
I recently worked with Kapow Chicago on a private event involving Chef Charles Webb, a renown (but local to Chicago) culinary master. Chef Webb and his team created several delectable canapés in front of a stunning backdrop of east and south views of the city.
I tried to pick up a few tips, but I didn't mention that I burned the heck out of garlic bread a few weeks ago (that broiler is tricky). I figure photographing the magic is the closest I'll ever get to sharing a kitchen with these pros.
