Taste Takes Flight is an annual culinary event bringing together chefs from throughout the greaterChicagoarea in support of WINGS (Women in Need Growing Stronger)—dedicated to assisting women and children who are victims of domestic violence. These chefs donate their time, talents and signature dishes to help support the event and WINGS.
