Thanks to everyone who came out to the January food swap, which will took place on January 12 and was hosted by Mac & Cheese Productions. Everyone enjoyed this smaller, more intimate event and the offerings were as amazing as usual! Huge thanks to our generous gift bag sponsors, Argo Tea, Cabot Creamery and the Savory Spice Shop. Everyone was blown away by the great swag! Congratulations to Maddie and Mike who took home the raffle prize, a Ball FreshTECH Automatic Jam and Jelly Maker.
Emily will be distributing recipes from the swap to all attendees next week. If you attended the January swap and would like to have your recipe included, please email it to Emily as soon as possible. To read more about the January swap, be sure to check out the recap on swapper Kelly's blog.
Argo Tea, a Chicago-based company that sells delicious teas and healthy food, recently supported the Chicago Food Swap with a contribution to the gift bags for the January swap. Right now, Emily is partnering with Argo Tea on her blog, West of the Loop, to give away two $50 Argo Tea gift certificates. Just leave a comment on the post to enter. In addition, you can find a coupon for a free oatmeal with purchase of a signature drink at any Argo Tea cafe. That's a great offer! Be sure to check it out and show some love for our sponsors.
