Do you consider yourself a foodie with more of a refined palette? Then Chicago Gourmet 2012 is the perfect Chicago event for you!

According to its website, “Bon Appétit presents Chicago Gourmet is a celebration of food and wine showcasing more than 100 of Chicago’s finest restaurants and chefs, as well as hundreds of renowned vintners, spirit makers and premium breweries from around the world.”

Hosted in Millennium Park, September 28-30, guests can enjoy two days filled with cooking seminars and demonstrations from internationally renowned chefs, master sommeliers and wine makers; book signings; and best yet—a chance to sample hundreds of delicious gourmet creations, wines and other spirits.

The fun doesn’t end there. Chicago Gourmet will kick off Friday with the Hamburger Hop—a fun (and mouthwatering) showdown where top Chicago chefs battle in a friendly competition to create the city’s best burger. And on Saturday and Sunday, the Grand Cru will offer participating guests exclusive wine tastings of some of the finest wines in the world.

Hungry? We are, too. Reserve your spot and purchase your tickets for Chicago Gourmet 2012 today!

And since we’re only minutes away from Millennium Park, book your stay with Broughton Hotels of Chicago – City Suites Hotel, The Majestic Hotel or The Willows Hotel!


This is a culinary event you don’t want to miss! Chicago Gourmet is coming to Millennium Park September 23 – 25 and is sure to delight even the most upscale palate. This festival will be going on all weekend and will open with the “Hamburger Hop” burger competition on Friday at 6:00 p.m.

Chicago Gourmet features authentic culinary adventures while showcasing more than 100 of Chicago’s top chefs. There will be a wide assortment of cooking lessons, gourmet samplings and wine tastings. Take the time to attend demonstrations in order to “Savor the Flavors of Mexico” and learn “How to Cook Like a Top Chef Master.” There are many more live cooking exhibits with topics such as vegan cooking, seafood, organic tastes, wine quality and cocktail basics.

Unlike Taste of Chicago, this event isn’t free.  However, the cost can certainly be justified by the unforgettable experience! For all of the wine connoisseurs, The Grand Cru event is an exclusive opportunity to experience some of the world’s finest wines in the company of master sommeliers.
