Chef Paul Kahan tweeted Publican Quality Meats will now serve burgers and we’re salivating already. Beginning May 1, PQM serves up their first burger night. One thing we KNOW for sure, we expect juicy burgers. Hopefully George Motz will hit this joint on his next Chi trip so we know the low down from the true burger expert himself… Until then, we’ll juuuust have to sample the goods ourselves. 312.445.8977. 825 W.

Delicious DIRT’S Slideshow Photo Tour from Cultivate Festival 2011

Tiny But Mighty Popcorn we LOVE @ Cultivate by MBK

As if Chipotle hadn’t done enough already to woo eaters of all stripes! From food nerds to tree-huggers to just plain burrito-lovers, Chipotle (wonderful sponsor of Food Film Fest) threw an enormous and thoughtful bash in Chicago’s Lincoln Park on a gorgeous October Saturday. The first annual kickass Cultivate Festival rocked us with killer food, sexy tunes, and inspiring ideas. Repping the Artisan Hall, Birky Family Farm’s Cornbread+BBQ pork+blueberries= perfect balance of sweet, smoky, and savory while Rich Chocolates melted in our mouths. Tiny But Mighty foods blew our minds with their popcorn (and their name which is anything but tiny on taste).  Bell’s Brewery, Chicago fave Goose Island and more kept us delightfully tipsy as we soaked in the sun and rocked out to White Rabbits and Calexico, just to name a few… Of course, we learned much too: Paul Virant, Paul Kahan, and Bruce Sherman rounded out the who’s-who of Chitown’s top chefs who led demos in tents across the park while Amanda Freitag (Food Film Fest goddess) brought her NYC goodness. Virant’s skirt steak salad with Dietzler Farm beef and heirloom tomatoes elevated picnic fare to a whole new level.

Pleasant House Bakery's Tasty Meatball @ Chicago Food Film Fest by Marc Klutznick

If you’re food nerds like us and you happened to have missed the SOLD OUT 2011 Chicago Food Film Fest this past weekend, calm your inner food geek with these festival flicks. You won’t be having foodgasms while tasting what you saw as we did…but this is the #nextbestthing until #FFF 2012. For now, satisfy your inner food nerd with these short flicks below.

You’ll see hottie Danny Macaroons get down in his sweet kitchen + crave macs within twenty seconds. These macaroons actually need no intro, already have a cult following, + are the most soft plump fresh scrumptious macaroons we’ve had. See why for yourselves below and let us know when you get lucky enough to mac on those macs (hint: order here). You’ll also probably salivate over D Vault’s doughnuts which def walked the walk. Yes, we’ve officially lost our D Vault virginity and hell yes, it was worth the wait. #donutsarethenewcupcakes. And after seeing sexy chef Aaron make those doughnuts at 1am, we now know how much delicacy goes into these mind-blowing delights + why people stand in the rain for hours to scarf em down. You’ll also see #ChiFFF double award winner for best short + audience choice -> Buttermilk: It Can Help, Farm To Barstool + a few Intelligentsia shorts below… Food porn photo tours soon… stay tuned for more #DeliciousDIRT soon.
