Saturday was the yearly Chicago Gourmet Festival which I had the delicious pleasure of attending. This is where top chefs get to show off their skills and share their stories. It was the perfect day too. The sun was shinning and I was feeling positive! I was also assigned to take over High Fashion Living Insta-snap for the day so I was having fun with that!
When arriving I was handed a wine glass, a palate and a stuffed goodie bag. I’ve never seen such a variety of wines, imported from all over the world! Tasting the mixed drinks and wine from Spain and Italy was especially delightful. It made me hungry so moved my way toward the food. I tried the chopped salad, meatballs and the best potato/Brat sandwich I’ve ever tasted!
I sampled tastings of gourmet creations most of the day and was able to talk to local vendors to get some background knowledge on food and drinks. I’m sure many people left with knowing new wine brands they would be hesitant to buy without a sample.
Overall I had a fun time. Interacting and talking with people and hearing how many years they have been attending this festival was interesting. I will definitely be attending next year! Don’t Forget to follow me on IG: Straightfunction
