Chicago Gourmet 2019

Chicago Gourmet

In the spotlight each September, Bon Appétit presents Chicago Gourmet delivers a culinary tour de force. On stage at Millennium Park’s Pritzker Pavilion, celebrity chefs present their favorite dishes while they cook, laugh, take questions – and selfies. Just beyond the stage, tents galore on the Great Lawn delight the crowd with delicious food, wine, spirits and beer tastings. Ready for a master class? Two seminar spots feature top sommeliers and mixologists opening bottles and minds with new wines to try and cocktails to shake.

Hoping for an encore? You got it. Friday night’s double act offers tasty burgers, cold beer, and skyline views at the Hamburger Hop on the Harris Theater rooftop while dancing and night-caps follow at the Late Night Gourmet after-party. And, not to be outdone, special themed dining events each year treat guests to dynamite culinary experiences in unique venues.

So grab a glass (and a napkin) and join us as Chicago Gourmet celebrates ‘Food + Entertainment’ this year. Cue the chefs!
