Win tickets to see Grant Achatz and more at the Chicago Humanities Festival
This year, [TOC Food Editor] David Tamarkin and I had the opportunity to collaborate with Matti Bunzl, the Artistic Director of the Chicago Humanities Festival, on a food-focused slate of events for this year's fest. We just got word that two of the three events are already sold out, but—don't cry—we have a secret stash of tickets that we saved for TOC readers. Fill out the form below, selecting which program you're interested in attending, and cross your fingers; we'll randomly select 10 names for each program and hook the lucky winners up with a pair of tickets. The three programs are:
Adam Gopnik: The Table Comes First [Sold out]
Sunday, October 21, noon–1pm, at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts
New Yorker staff writer Adam Gopnik discusses the evolution of eating with Sun-Times columnist Neil Steinberg.
Grant Achatz and the Culinary Cutting-Edge [Sold out]
Sunday, November 4, 10–11am, at Francis W. Parker School
The mastermind behind Alinea, Next and the Aviary will discuss his culinary and aesthetic vision with Madeleine Grynsztejn, Pritzker Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
The United States of Chocolate
Sunday, November 4, noon–1pm, at Francis W. Paker School
A few years ago, I had the opportunity to visit the Askinosie chocolate factory in Springfield, Missouri, and to meet its founder, Shawn Askinosie, whose committment to chocolate—both in terms of taste and ethics—is extraordinary. He will be speaking along with Katrina Markoff, the founder of Vosges.
