Living Healthy Chicago Visits the Chicago French Market

Could you prepare a delicious meal for two for less than $20? That’s the challenge that you’ll find on one of Chicago’s most fun television shows that airs frequently on CLTV and starting this Sunday, October 30, at 11:30 a.m. on WGN. Living Healthy Chicago, starring WLUP diva and personality host Jane Monzures, stopped by the Chicago French Market Wednesday for the second time to film a segment.
Joining Jane was nutrition knowledgeable Chef Joe Rosetti from Market Bar on Randolph. The challenge was not only to create a meal for under $20, but to make it healthy and local. Chicago French Market offers a number of farm stand vendors selling local, fresh vegetables and many organics.

During their visit, Joe and Jane shopped at Produce Express, Pastoral Artisan Cheese Bread & Wine, Chicago Organics and City Fresh Market to pick up the necessities. The rather humorous Joe was holding out in telling Jane what was on the menu and made a game of keeping her guessing until the end. Kale here. Scallions there. Turnips. Ground turkey. Bread. Cheese. What could they be making?

As Jane and Joe made their way through the market, they sampled a little bit of what each vendor has to offer and were amazed at the quality of food they could find for such a reasonable price! From the locally grown fresh produce to delicious gourmet cheeses to great-tasting bread, they were impressed with what the market had to offer. They got a great selection of ingredients and still had change left over! Keep your eyes open for the segment to air on Living Healthy Chicago to find out what Jane and Joe made from their trip to the French Market.
