Something's Cooking Celebrates Twelfth Year

October 30, 2015

On Sunday, Center for Independent Futures celebrated a dozen years of community and cuisine at the twelfth annual Something’s Cooking. This fall fundraiser brings together the best of the North Shore in tastings from local restaurants and a food-themed silent auction.

Among the participating restaurants were new friends and familiar faces. Evanston’s beloved Blind Faith Cafe participated for the first time, bringing innovative vegetarian style with stuffed grape leaves and shiitake pot stickers. Edzo’s Burger Shop was in the fall spirit with pumpkin pie milkshakes along with their classic Nutella flavor.

Peckish Pig returned for a second year with their popular bacon-wrapped dates, and Valley Lodge Tavern served up sliders and pretzel bites. A decadent dessert display rounded out the afternoon, including treats from Misericordia’s Hearts & Flour bakery and Have Dream’s ILOVESWEETS kitchen.

Center for Independent Futures would like to thank the participating restaurants for treating us to an amazing tasting tour, the volunteers who made the event run smoothly, and everyone who attended for sharing your afternoon with us.

We are especially grateful to the staff at Prairie Moon, whose generosity in hosting us each year has made this event possible. This support, along with all of the funds raised at Something’s Cooking, will allow us to continue creating new solutions for individuals with disabilities and their families. We’re already looking forward to next year’s festivities!
