Writer Amy Markley (amyemarkley@yahoo.com) and AD Stephen Spring (springstephen@hotmail.com) work at FCB/Chicago, though they're not a team. But they did team up for a pair of spec campaigns for children's cooking classes at the Chopping Block. "The Chopping Block is a real business here in Chicago, and it does indeed offer children's cooking classes," explains Markley. "The idea came out of the irony that the Chopping Block is a pretty upscale, sophisticated cooking store and school that also caters to children; so what happens when your kids turn into miniature foodie chefs?"
