    Sommelier Bob Bansberg, who taught wine classes at Kendall College, has died. His classes were often on Saturday morning, so he would stroll over to my food history meetings afterwards.

    Always intended to do a program together on Presidential wines, but getting schedules synced was an endless problem.

    What a wonderful person to exchange thoughts on food and restaurant culture, because he was so down to Earth. Just learned from reading some people's reactions, he grew up in LaSalle county.

    Margit Kirsche dies; Holocaust survivor founded Skokie’s Hungarian Kosher Foods
    Decades after being held in a Nazi concentration camp, a Minneapolis man named Hymie Kane was shopping at Hungarian Kosher Foods in Skokie and saw a customer he thought might be an old friend.

    “He screams down the aisle, ‘Are you Shloime from Bergen-Belsen?’ ” said his son, Sheldon Kane.

    The other man turned, shocked to recognize another survivor. And the store on Oakton Street at Crawford Avenue suddenly was filled with weeping and shouts of joy. Forty years and 4,300 miles from Bergen-Belsen, in the immaculate aisles of what the Times of Israel once called “America’s first all-kosher supermarket,” the two Holocaust survivors were reunited.

    This obituary concludes with Margit's signature chicken soup.
