Kristin Chenoweth on Chicago Food

Kristin Chenoweth, who played the endearing Olive on Pushing Daisies and Glinda in the musical Wicked, was interviewed in the most recent issue of Bon Appétit. Chenoweth splits her time between Los Angeles and New York City, and has traveled all over the world. Yet, when asked where to find the best food, she named Chicago.

The full interview can be found in the May 2010 issue of Bon Appétit.
