@jimmypapadop of @bellemorechicago poaches fish in the world's most expensive edible oil for our ongoing chef to chef challenge video series Key Ingredient. Challenged by C.J. Jacobson of @emachicago to create a dish with the oil, Papadopoulos said of the oil, “It tastes like dried Sicilian cured olives. Imagine that meaty fruitiness you get, the salinity, but then this weird—it kind of reminds me of plastic and cardboard with undertones of olive oil” Check out the full video in the bio link.

Alkermes has quietly carved out a lucrative, publicly subsidized market for its drug, Vivitrol, an expensive—and risky—medicine that the company promises can help rescue Illinois from its opioid crisis. But is it worth the costs? Story by Bill Myers in this week’s issue. Illustrations by @reisenbees Link to story in bio #chicagoreader #illustration #opiodcrisis #addiction

Over here in the West Loop it is not all cranes and construction. Our office is surrounded by some beautiful and historic Art Deco. The Richter’s Food Products factory building dates back to 1931 when construction began for $500,000. All that pomp for a sausage factory. 🌭 That’s Chicago. 📷 @jramsayvv #chicagogram #chicagoreaderphotography #chicagoreader #chicagohistory #artdeco #meatpacking #sausage #abefroman #westloopchicago #architecture #richterfoodproducts #mykindoftown

"It was full of cockroaches and rats. The kitchen cabinets were molding and rotting away, the toilets weren't attached, and the whole house stank of animal urine and mold. The previous tenants were hoarders and they had giant fish tanks, which meant the humidity caused mold everywhere." The Johnsons purchased their Logan Square 2-flat home for $180,000, 7 years ago. Possessing no major renovation experience whatsoever, they decided to rehab the place themselves and chronicle their insanity on a blog Two Flat: Remade. It has inadvertently inspired others who also have no idea what they are doing and created a community of home-rehab bloggers. @steveheisler has the full story: link in bio.
