We’ve heard and seen it several times this year. A food recall that caused unwelcoming health problems and a major scare amongst consumers from around the world. There was spinach, beef, tomatoes, jalapenos, mussels, tuna salad and even popcorn that hit the news wire at some point. It’s great when the FDA finds the source of an E. coli breakout, but it’s very hard to a pinpoint the food origin.
Worry no more, well at least when you eat the cuisine catered by Cleetus Friedman of City Provisions. Founder and Executive Chef, Cleetus lets his clients know exactly where their food comes from. Therefore, he actually connects his customers to the food that they eat, by using local ingredients from local farms. Imagine knowing the exact farm that your ham sandwich or tomato salad came from. How great to have dinner at a farm that provides you with everything on your plate? Everything is fresh, organic and good. They have a suggested catering menu and specialize in custom menu planning.
CleetusFriedman was recently selected as one of the Chicago Sun-Times 50 people changing Chicago. He is definitely doing his part by using products that are easily recyclable or biodegradable. City Provisions is doing everything possible to be Eco-Friendly. They introduce a lot of their customers to their cuisine via Supper Club events. I will partake in their five-course vegetarian Supper Club tonight where cuisine and beer, donated by Great Lakes Brewery, will be paired. The theme is “Sustainability with Food and Drink” and their September 20th Supper Club theme is “The Farm Dinner” at Dietzler Farms.
