Recap of the January Swap & Upcoming Events


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.  



Upcoming Events:
  • Sunday January 19 at 2 pm -- the Northshore Chicago Food Swap will be holding their second swap in Evanston. Perfect for those located on the North Shore or who missed the January 12 swap! You can register here.
  • Saturday February 8 at 2 pm -- Registration is now open for the next Chicago Food Swap which will take place at 2 pm on February 8 at All Natural Chicago Catering. All Natural Chicago is a new local catering company that specializes in healthy and flavorful cuisine. All Natural Chicago provides breakfasts and lunches for corporate gatherings as well as parties and other special events. Owners Tess and Micky are very excited to welcome our group to their cool loft space. The February 8 swap is 2/3 full, so do not wait to register! As always, we will keep a waitlist once all the spots are full.  
Other upcoming events include a culinary tour of Devon Ave, another swap at The Chopping Block, a swap and open house on an organic farm outside of the city and more. Stay tuned for more information on these events and more swaps! Emily is busy working on finalizing more 2014 dates but we need locations. If you know of a location for a swap that can accommodate at least 50 swappers with tables, please let Emily know. Some of our best locations have come from swapper suggestions.
