Event description

Description

Love Chicago food? Got your neighborhood or ethnic favorites? You’ll relish the fact that there’s now a source for all things Chicago culinary that you’ll really be able to sink your teeth into.

The Chicago Food Encyclopedia’s hundreds of entries deliver all of the visionary restaurateurs, Michelin superstars, beloved haunts and food companies of today and yesterday. Throughout, a roster of writers, scholars and industry experts pays tribute to an expansive--and still expanding--food history that not only helped build Chicago but fed a growing nation. This is an authoritative work that, according to Chef Rick Bayless, “brings us closer to our city’s culinary past, present and future…I’ve always said food with a story always tastes better. This is ours.”

Join us and co-authors and Chicago food lovers Carol Haddix, Bruce Kraig and Colleen Sen for a talk and Q&A. Food will be provided by Taco In A Bag.




Tickets for the talk $15. You can pre-order the book for an additional $30.83 (20% discount + sales tax); it will also be available for sale on the day of the event at full price.


Refund/cancellation policy: A full refund will be provided for cancellations requests received from customers up to one week (seven days) before the event. No refund or store credit will be provided for cancellation requests received less than a week before the event.
