(Chicago, IL) I've been so darned busy lately that I haven't had a chance to update you on www.OldHavanaFoods.com, my fledgling family food enterprise. Many thanks to those of you who've messaged me asking for the latest on my Julian Crews: Bean Quest / WGN Morning News Blog.
As you know, it's been almost a year now since I launched my dream to bring authentic, all-natural Cuban specialties, music and culture to Chicago.
My easy-to-prepare stovetop meals were showcased earlier this month at the Ethnic Foods Symposium in Manassas, Virginia. We were invited to participate by the southeastern United States offices of Anderson Daymon Worldwide (ADW) near Atlanta, GA. ADW are the exclusive in-house food brokers for Costco.
But with all the flooding that's been going on in Georigia and other parts of the southeast, I haven't heard back from them yet. They've been busy dealing with the floodwaters and keeping their operations afloat (literally).
So when I get some news I'll pass it on. Thanks to everyone who's written with so many words of encouragement. It's much appreciated.
