French Morning asked hundreds of readers : who makes the best baguette in Chicago ?
On February 16th at SOFITEL Chicago Magnificent Mile, the finalists will compete for bragging rights in front of a jury of professional chefs and celebrities.
You will be able to follow the jury's deliberations as well as tasting all the baguettes and breads yourself and talking to the bakers. All bakers will display their baguettes and other breads for the public to sample before the audience chooses their favorite.
A big thanks goes out to our sponsors and partners who made this possible: Cacao Noel, Château d’Esclans and the products of Ile-de-France.
Bakeries are: La Fournette, Maison Parisienne, La Farine Bakery, La Boulangerie, Bennison's, Floriole, Baker & Nosh, Hewn Bread.
4 awards will be given : Grand Prix, Fan Prix, Readers Award, Specialty Bread
Tickets include bread tasting and a selection of cheeses (Ile de France) and charcuterie + 1 glass of wine (Château d'Esclans). $40 per person. Early bird tickets are $20 for the first 100 tickets sold.
