Chicago Gourmet 2016

Chicago Gourmet: we came, we saw, we conquered ate and drank ourselves into a massive coma (as per usual!). The ninth annual festival (aka the biggest and most spectacular culinary event of the year) took place in Millennium Park the last weekend of September, and for the fourth year in a row, Diana and I were lucky to join over 200 of our favorite chefs, mixologists, and vitners, along with over 13,000 of our food-lovin' friends for a trip to culinary nirvana! Here's a bit of what we ate during our day of fabulous foodie fun...

Prosciutto-Butter Toast topped with dill from Monteverde (one of my new favorite restaurants and one of my favorite bites of the entire festival!)

Ceviche with scallops, shrimp, rocoto-aji Amarillo and leche de tigre from Tanta

Chilled Autumn Soup with ginger, apple, pumpkin, crème fraîche, and smoked salmon from Kinmont

Duck-Fat Hot Dog from The Duck Inn

Beef Tartare potato chip from Swift & Sons

Sliders from Hopsmith Tavern

Prime Rib Crostini from Rosebud Steakhouse

Tuna Pate from Autre Monde Cafe

Buffalo Mozzarella three ways from Coda di Volpe

Blue Velvet Coconut Donuts from Stan’s Donuts
