Last night I had the pleasure of attending CS Magazine‘s kick-off party for the James Beard awards.  Dubbed the ‘party of the year,’ there were over 500 foodies and influencers gathered at this exclusive soirée at Venue One Chicago.  There were over 30 Chicago restaurants indulging guests with delicious bites, tasty cocktails and gorgeous art work made with veggies and fruit by Chicago Fashion Illustrator Kristine Steiner.

The James Beard Foundation Awards, dubbed “the Oscars of the food world” by Time Magazine, celebrates the best and brightest culinary professionals in America. The city of Chicago is incredibly proud to host the nation’s preeminent honors Monday May 2, 2016.

The 26th Annual Awards Ceremony and Gala Reception will be held at the Civic Opera House and will be hosted by Carla Hall. Over this weekend — the social highlight of the year for the culinary industry — Chicago will welcome nearly 2,500 of the country’s top chefs, restaurateurs, food media and culinary enthusiasts. And for those that love to eat, there is no better place to gather than in CHI city ~ my City! Until next time…
