One of the downsides of writing for pay, or for other publications, is you’re always forced to have some angle or reason for coverage, like a chef is opening a new spot or Israeli food is hot. This is fine, but sometimes you just want to cover someone because you find them fascinating, generous, infectious, or exciting. The good news is because of your generosity and this newsletter, I get to do exactly stuff like that. And when I think about someone who ticks all those boxes, I can think of no one better than Alpana Singh, partner at Terra and Vine restaurant in Evanston, Check, Please! host, and sommelier extraordinaire.
