ABOUT THIS ISSUE In Good Company: We usher in the holiday season with a warm welcome from Nancy Brussat Barocci and her daughter, Candace Warner, our cover gals who invite you into their "home away from home" – Convito Café & Market in Wilmette. Meet the four women who opened their homes, and hearts, to support the 2012 Cooks' Tour Housewalk and in doing so helped generate proceeds to benefit the Breast Imaging Center at Rush. We are proud to honor Chris Canning in this issue as our Quintessential Person!
