Lemme tell you, it wasn’t easy to leave 85-degree temps for the Chicago tundra that awaited, but I returned from my week long visit to Chile over the weekend. I have lots to report, from the green chile-spiked Pisco Sours to my visits to organic apple orchards, blueberry fields, vineyards and more. We ate awesome seafood, steak and empanadas, drank Chilean wines including Carmenère, and tried local delicacies like miel de ulmo honey, lucuma fruit jam and Serrano ham potato chips! I’ll be posting stories and pics from my visit all week, finishing up on Friday with some of my favorite non-food related photos I captured in and around Santiago as well as the historic port city of Valparaiso and more. Enjoy.
