Not that we exactly planned for this to happen, but Tuesday has kind of turned into an unofficial Pleasant House Bakery Day here. This morning, Blake brought you the story about how owner Art Jackson creates his English-style bangers (hint: it's all about the rusk). If you'd like a little more information about what goes on at bakery in Bridgeport, you should definitely check out this video put together by Sky Full of Bacon's Mike Gebert (who you also may recognize as the editor of Grub Street Chicago).
Called Farm to Barstool, the video tracks how Jackson transforms produce from gardens around Bridgeport into fillings for his unbelievable savory pies. The pies are then delivered next door for the hungry patrons at Maria's Packaged Goods & Community Bar (hence the barstool in the title). As is always the case with Gebert's videos, it's a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at how food is actually made in Chicago.
The short video premiered over the weekend at the Chicago Food Film Festival, but you can now check it out below.
