Food Network Taking Over Ravinia

It’s no secret food is the new rock, but the Food Network is taking things literally this Saturday, Sept. 20th. The all-food cable channel will join forces with musicians like John Mayer and American Idol season 11 winner Phillip Phillips – along with dozens of Chicago-area chefs – to create a unique, all-day concert filled with food and music.  Among the highlights: a venue called “The Greatest Hits” featuring bites from 50 chefs and more than 100 wineries. Other experiences include a BBQ-themed country cookout, a Farm to Turntable; Rock ‘n Rolls (sandwiches with a twist); Hot Hot Hot! with some of the spiciest dishes from around the world and “I Want Candy,” a dessert-themed tasting hosted by the Network’s Anne Burrell, along with 15 pastry chefs from around the country.


A portion of the proceeds benefit Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign; for more information on tickets, check out their website.
