From Thursday, October 12 to Monday October 16, 2017, join Edmonton Journal food writer and Alberta Food Tours’ guide Liane Faulder as she travels with a small group of devoted food adventurers to experience one of the great eating – and entertainment – centers in the United States.

With some 2.7 million residents, Chicago is big enough to be home to a large number of innovative chefs experimenting with new food trends while continuing to nurture the signature flavours of Chicago, including deep dish pizza, hot dogs, Mexican food and the classic steak.

Named in 2015 as one of the 10 best food cities in the United States by the Washington Post, the city boasts an Eataly – one of chef Mario Batali’s signature food halls. There, Liane’s guests will enjoy a pizza cooking class, making their own delicious Neapolitan-style pie –  served with wine – and yielding recipes that can bring Chicago home to your own kitchen when the trip is over.

We’ll also visit celebrity chef Rick Bayless’ Frontera Grill for Mexican fare, plus sample an Asian feast at Sunda – an award-winning restaurant representing America’s New Asian movement.

During our four-night stay, food lovers will enjoy action packed food tours and numerous rich eating experiences, while still having time to enjoy other exciting elements offered by the city – from great live theatre and jazz, to a tour of The Art Institute of Chicago and the city’s renowned architectural society boat tour.

This tour is limited to 14 guests, so book now to make sure you are firmly at the center of Liane’s food, fun and adventure tour of Chicago.
