Chicago Flavors

Products inspired by growing up in an Italian/Irish American Catholic family in Chicagoland, in kitchens at my mother's hip, my grandmother's side, and my great aunts' and uncles' shadows. Chicago Johnny's line is my history in the kitchen from making Italian sausage from scratch with my grandpa to every family gathering surrounded by homemade dishes listening to conversations about how those dishes were made.

Make It A Chicago Dog

"Drag It T'rough Da Gahden" with Chicago Johnny's Sweet Chicago Relish, Sport Peppers, and Celery Salt! Start with a steamed poppy seed bun, t'row on a steamed, simmered, or charred all beef dog, squeeze out a squiggle of yellow mustard, then a slathering of sweet relish so neon green it hurts your eyes, a few (two, t'ree) sport peppers, some diced raw white onion, a crisp pickle spear, a couple a tomato wedges..... and a dash or two of celery salt.

The greatness of a Chicago Dog lies in the layering of repetitive flavors. Layers of repeated acid (sport peppers, mustard, pickle, sweet relish), doubling down on bite and heat (mustard, sport peppers, raw onion), and balancing of sweet sweet sweet (sweet relish, tomatoes, pickle) and freshness (tomatoes, onion, and that bright pickle). So that's my take on the Chicago Dog. Pick up a Chicago Dog gift kit for someone you love!
