CHICAGO GOURMET 2018

Rock the Fork September 28-30! 

Chicago Gourmet, presented by world-renowned Bon Appétit, grips foodies and the food world with excitement each fall.

From September 28-30, 2018, guests will gather at Millennium Park, Harris Theater and the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel as celebrity chefs headline cooking demos on two stages, wine and mixology seminars serve up "the coolest trends in a glass," and an astounding line up of delicious food, wine, spirits and beer tastings tantalize tastebuds. 

Special music-inspired culinary events offer guests VIP experiences in unique venues, while the classic Hamburger Hop® on Friday night followed by the Late Night Gourmet after-party combine fun and panache for a singular, multi-sensory experience.

Here's a taste of things to come:
