greetings from chicago Beaujolais & Chicago Deep Dish Pizza

Chicago deep-dish pizza is legendary. Ooey-gooey deliciousness that takes nearly an hour to bake and a single slice is a meal. After the Wines of France Across America Team descended on Chicago we made a bee-line for deep-dish. Of course, we were told when we phoned in the order, “twenty-minutes.” When we arrived a half-hour later, we were told another “twenty-minutes.” (“Twenty-minutes” is the theme of the trip so far — all distances are “twenty-minutes” ). While we waited, we kept working on our phones. But the pie was worth the wait — see the cheesy awesomeness below.

You might have to wait for your pizza, but Beaujolais is waiting for you, all across America.
