This week on PLSR we’re thrilled to be featuring Kyle of Foodseum. Kyle is the mastermind behind Chicago’s first & only food museum that will be opening in the near future. Fitting, since Chicago, now host to the James Beard Awards, is one of the most incredible food cities in the world. This fresh concept will be open to the public and targets all ages, making for a family friendly environment that’s perfect for an afternoon adventure or entertainment for visitors of the Windy City.
The museum, which will first feature an encased meats exhibit, will provide historic and cultural context to the foods on display.
Kyle shared with us his great-great-grandmother’s recipe for Swedish Pancakes that she brought from Sweden to America. Lingonberry jam (pictured) is the standard topping for a traditional Swedish Pancake; see, you’re already learning food history and the museum hasn’t even opened yet! Just imagine all you can learn, explore, & (most importantly) taste once the museum opens!
