Harrison Jones is a professional computer geek, adventurer and culinary enthusiast. He grew up around the city of Joliet – about 35 miles southwest of Chicago. He now resides on the south side of Chicago near US Cellular Field – home of the Chicago White Sox. Aside from writing about food and travel, he also occasionally writes for several prestigious internet marketing and web development publications.
With over 5 years of experience in the food service industry, Harrison has worked in just about every position at various restaurants. He currently works at one of the top B2B marketing and advertising firms in the world. In his free time, he enjoys cooking, traveling, White Sox, Blackhawks, wind surfing, and taking advantage of Chicago’s incredible culinary scene.
His professional and personal experience with restaurants, cooking and history inspired him to start the Chicagoland Food Blog to introduce native Chicagoans and tourists to the best culinary experiences this great city has to offer. You may notice a strong bias towards the suburbs, south and west sides of Chicago. This was intentional. There are too many food bloggers out there only talking about the north side and downtown, so this blog is here to give a unique perspective of Chicago’s food scene. Besides, downtown and the north side are overrated anyway. Join him as he takes a tour through Chicago and it’s suburbs to find the most unique, historical and tastiest culinary hotspots in the area. His personal belief is that you can never truly understand a culture until you dive into their culinary methods, practices and favorites.
