James Beard Foundation's Taste America® Preview: ChicagoJBF Editors
October 15, 2014
This weekend James Beard Foundation’s Taste America®, our national epicurean tour, stops in Chicago, the future home of the 2015 James Beard Awards. We’ve got two days of food-filled exclusive events featuring Taste America All-Star and James Beard Award Winner Grant Achatz, and local star and James Beard Award Winner Sean Brock. Friday night kicks off with a tasting reception from a stunning lineup of JBF Award winners from the Windy City, followed by an exclusive dinner prepared by Achatz and Brock. Saturday the action moves to Sur La Table, for cooking demos and book signings from Achatz and JBF Award Winner Tony Mantuano and Cathy Mantuano, and free tastings from local vendors Publican Quality Meats and Little Goat Bakery.
