Chef Fiona couldn’t resist grilling up some tender, juicy steak for the Chicago stop of the DMB Summer Tour. The crew savored the Garlic Marinated Grilled Flank Steak with Fresh Herb and Olive Tapenade before taking the stage later that night. Try pairing the dish at home with the Dreaming Tree Cabernet.

“My favorite two sides with Fiona’s flank steak are the flank steak and the flank steak. I always eat her asparagus too. She is magical.”
