Description

ITALIAN FOOD TOUR OF CHICAGO

Chicago's culinary pedigree is, much like Chicago itself, quintessentially American. Upon further investigation however, you'll find that many of Chicago's signature specialties derive from the cuisine of Italy. Italian cuisine is characterized by its simplicity, with many dishes having only four to eight ingredients. Italian cooks rely chiefly on the quality of the ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation. Come join your expert tour guide for a delightful stroll through the history of Italian cuisine via the Chicago sights on the Italian Food Tour of Chicago!
