ChefConnect: Chicago

Chicago, Illinois, February 5–7, 2017

We’re heading to Chicago! From blues and jazz to film and comedy to sports and parks, the Windy City is always bustling with life and excitement. Not to mention Chicago offers up some of the world’s best food—so why wouldn’t we kick things off there? The local food scene presents an array of ethnic influence, including Greek, Polish, Italian, Chinese and Indian, among others.
