Thank you to all the local Chicagoland folks that participated in the Share our Strength: Taste of the Nation Chicago giveaway! Two lucky winners have been randomly selected based on the number of their comment, in response to what one of their favorite restaurants is in Chicago. Find out who won and what culinary adventures are planned for What’s Cookin, Chicago in August…
It’s been several months since I’ve been really active hosting events for our culinary group, What’s Cookin, Chicago. I took a slight hiatus to focus on my rather challenging pregnancy but now that my little one is just about 3 months old (seriously, where did the time go?!), I’m ready to jump back into the kitchen and take on more culinary adventures in the city with friends! If you’re in the Chicago area, take a look at our cooking/baking event calendar and our wine event calendar for August to see ‘What’s Cookin’ and come join us in the kitchen. Some events we’ll be hosting include…
- Indian Favorites cooking class
- French Pastries baking class
- Ina Garten cooking class
- Wine Flight event at Bin 36
- Tropical cocktail party
- Little Village neighborhood culinary tour & taco crawl
- Devon Ave neighborhood culinary tour
- Off the Beaten Path: Thai dinner
- Ethnic BYOB dinners: Mexican & Soul Food
- BYOB Classical Concerts every Wednesday
- BYOB Jazz Concerts
- Monthly Book & Movie event
Now for our winners! The winners will be indulging in this culinary experience featuring 50 of Chicago’s best chefs and restaurants in a celebration of street food. We’ll savor delicious craft beers from Stella Artois and Chicago’s own Goose Island, along with many other brews and wines, and specialty cocktails created by 25 of Chicago’s best mixologists. There’s even a decadent Dessert Lounge planned for us to indulge in! We’ll be enjoying all the sweets, savories and drinks provided as well as enjoy street-themed entertainment from a variety of Chicago’s most cutting edge artists and performers.
The winners from our blog and our Facebook page were chosen based on the number of their comment. Winners will be contacted via email/Facebook with details regarding their ticket to the Share our Strength: Taste of the Nation Chicago event coming up on August 12, 2010. Congratulations again!
