Cheryl’s Global Soul
Time Out says
Flavors from French, Asian, Moroccan and Southern cuisines inspired chef Cheryl Smith to create the globe-trotting menu at this Prospect Heights restaurant. Start with a cocktail from around the world, like a Jamaican rum punch ($9, $11) or a margarita ($11). Cheryl’s Global Soul also offers a selection of wines by the glass or bottle. Appetizers include everything from split pea soup with smoked turkey ($6.50) to grilled jerk chicken wings ($8.50) to steamed Thai coconut curry mussels ($9.50). Entrees are similarly varied: You might go for the sake-glazed salmon with jasmine rice, sauteed spinach and nori ($21), the vegetarian tagine over couscous ($16), the bulgogi rib-eye with watercress salad and fries ($25) or the grilled pork chop au jus with mango chutney, green beans and roasted potatoes ($21).
Chef Cheryl worked as the Executive Chef at Marion’s Restaurant and A Go-Go Catering in Manhattan. After that she cooked in some of the finest kitchens in New York City: Sol’s, Match, Tocquiville, Lola, Nikkta, Bambou, and The Butta’ Cup. Cheryl's love of cooking and entertaining comes from her mothers kitchen and from her desire to recreate the wonderful dishes prepared there. Cheryl started cooking, first for friends and family, then for her own small catering company. After convincing a restauranter to take a chance on her in a professional kitchen, she worked her way up through all the stations—salad, fish, meat, and dessert—mastered the tools of butchering, and then earned the rank of executive chef.
Everything Chef Cheryl needed to know about running an efficient, organized, and profitable kitchen was learned hands-on and working along side top chefs.
