if you follow me on twitter, you know i am a travel freak! i’m writing this from moscow for goodness sake! combine that w/ my life long restaurant background, and my obsession for eating everything i can….and bang! i am of course a huge fan of andrew zimmern and his tv show “bizarre foods!” and if that wasn’t enough in and of itself, wait till you see what he told me about chicago’s food culture! now i really like him!
Speaking of our world class food culture, I have been bragging about a local culinary event for a year now that blew my mind called “Chicago Gourmet”… and it’s finally back this weekend! Not only does this even showcase the top talent of Chicago’s culinary community (including my guys chef james & the food buddha from rockit & sunda) through 2 days of high-end food & wine tastings, demos & educational seminars… but it all happens outside in beautiful millennium park! 50 chefs, 300 wine makers, 65 spirits providers… it’s amazing!
Tickets are available at www.ChicagoGourmet.org for $150/day or $250 for a two-day pass… and since I will be in Russia… I am giving my 2 passes away to my friendly supporter that best describes why andrew’s comment about our food culture is right on! Comment below and we will pick a winner by 5pm today
