Obama Pins Food Porn and Family Recipes

The newest member of the Pinterest family is… President Obama! Have you checked out the page yet? The campaign headquarters started pinning last Wednesday, introducing a bunch of different boards ranging from Pet Lovers for Obama to Obama-Inspired Recipes. We love love love that they included the Obama Family Chili Recipe. You miiiight remember it from the 2008 campaign and also a fundraiser this year during the Super Bowl. Most of the pinning on the recipe board are baked goods and other food nerd creations that are decorated Obama logo + all, but their following is growing enormously already. Super stoked for any other family recipes they pin. Hmmm, hottie Obama Chef Sam Kass, what are you gonna share next?  Have you tried this Obama chili recipe? Did you love? Tell us! In the meantime, check out the Obama Pinterest page. While you’re at it check out and follow us too! [Obama Foodoarama and Eater. Photo via Obama Pin] .

Owner of Franks ‘n Dawgs, Alexander Brunacci, is gearing up to bring us a second restaurant – and no doubt flavors will blow minds. Brunacci will be sticking to the same street food / fine dining flavors for his new project called The Peasantry while adding a additional menu items. The Peasantry is scheduled to open in May, and although there is no set menu yet, get these ideas in your naughty food porn mind: gyros made from ingredients like baby octopus, duck, or venison; duck wings prepared in buffalo-wing style; escargots; frog legs; grilled flatbreads; and house-made pastas. If this isn’t even the full menu yet, can you just IMAGINE what we’ve got in store? Word has it that a few of Franks ‘n Dawgs signature items (the house made sausages and lobster-roll bun) will transfer over to The Peasantry. What to expect: table service, a possible liquor license, and reasonably priced original food. Can not wait. 2723 N. Clark St.
