Chicago is a city with a sweet tooth, packed with unique pastries and desserts in every neighborhood restaurant and bakery for dining and snacking in Chicago. I’m a guy with a sweet tooth, so each week I’ll report on a different dessert you need to try. I mean, I’ll eat more than one dessert of course, but only one standout confection gets a shout out. When a restaurant touts itself as healthy and vegetarian-focused, with an emphasis on fake “chickin,” I generally take it with a hefty grain of salt. Or don’t eat there at all. I’m not too keen on restaurants that are preachy to the point of brow-beating customers into eating what they deem healthier, even though vegan and gluten-free items are not automatically diet-friendly. So with that minor rant out of the way, I have to admit I’ve been pleasantly surprised with the wares at Lyfe Kitchen, a California-based import that recently set up shop with its inaugural Chicago location in River North

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
 Budino is a sweet Italian dish, usually rich and creamy like a custard or pudding. The word originally referred to a type of medieval sausage, similar to English pudding.[1] Budino is the Italian word for custard or pudding.[2] It can be thickened with cornstarch or cookies to make it more like a soufflé or ganache, and can be sauced with various flavors, including chocolatecaramel, dewy apple, and butterscotch.[3]
