Gina arrived in Chicago, from Washington, DC, four years ago and hasn’t stopped eating since. When not busy leading the Event Sales team at The Chopping Block, she can be found dining in this city’s most fabulous restaurants or cooking up a new recipe based on ingredients grown in her urban garden. Coming from a restaurant family, it’s only natural that Gina’s favorite things in life include bacon, champagne and hosting impromptu get-togethers centered around whatever themed-menu she most recently dreamed up. If she meets you, you may just get invited to one of her annual Academy Award, Crab Feast, or Godfather Trilogy parties (complete with her grandmother’s homemade meatballs for everyone to take home).
