Hot from the Oven: A multimedia series on Evanston eateries

Angeli Mittal and William Clark

Welcome to Hot from the Oven, a series profiling local Evanston eateries to get a glimpse behind-the-scenes of their staff, clientele and history.

Behind every storefront is a story. Some may claim that sauce is the key to their success while others rely on sugar and syrup. From tales about Frida Kahlo to those of the Midwest, they all have their own origin stories but strive towards a common purpose: to serve the Evanston community. The Daily’s photo-audio series explores the unique tastes and flares to each of these businesses.
