This past weekend marked Bon Appétit's 7th annual Chicago Gourmet, a celebration of food and drink in Millennium Park. Being lucky enough to go both days, I put business aside on Saturday and enjoyed the experience. Chicago Gourmet is without a doubt the Disney World for adults and foodies. With top restaurants and chefs like Rick Bayless, Della Gossett, Jimmy Bannos Jr, and Carla Hall, this event is without a doubt a melding pot of the hottest trends and who's who in the culinary world.
In coming weeks, you will see a full five days devoted to the event. The food. The drinks. Up and coming restaurants in Chicago. In the meantime, I wanted to share a few pictures from the event, just to whet your appetite.
A very special thank you to: Isabelli Media Relations for the Chicago Gourmet preview video
