CHICAGO GOURMET MILLENNIUM PARK IS GATEWAY TO FALL HARVEST
ROCK THE FORK BIGGEST AND BEST CHICAGO GOURMET EVER WITH
ROCK STAR CELEBRITY CHEFS AND ROCKIN' WINES
This year's Chicago Gourmet was the rockin'est ever! With Chicago's HomeTown Favorite Celebrity Chef Rick Bayless leading off the cooking demonstrations with such TV luminaries as Iron Chef's Mario Rizzotti and The Chew's Carla Hall, this was an event that literally knocked it out of the park! In addition to Rick Bayless of TV and Fontera Grill fame, there was Graham Elliot, Edward Kim of Mott St. and Andrew Zimmerman of the ever-popular Sepia, among many other great local chefs, on hand to show us home cooks what it takes to make a great meal in a super short amount of time using fresh ingredients and ingenious techniques. I guess I'll throw out my grandmother's old recipe for marshmallow-coated candied yams this Thanksgiving!
