The Ballad of Katie Das

Catchy, what?

Now all we need is the song.

But I digress.

My favorite caramel fabricator was featured last week in a story by Mike Sula that appeared in Chicago Reader.

In it I learned all about her unlikely path to the top of sticky mountain.

Bonus: Katie let them into the Das Foods Caramelini factory for a world exclusive look at the creation of a 50 pound batch of her Candied Ginger and Pistachio caramels (my favorite among the eight varieties currently offered).

The video appears up top.

I watched (and listened) with rapt fascination as Katie narrated the seemingly simple, labor-intensive and artisanal process of creating her jewel-like, meticulously crafted pieces of gustatory heaven.

Time to reorder.
