The Celebrity Chef du Jour dining experiences offer a sit-down, three-course meal in an air-conditioned and decorated dining pavilion beside Buckingham Fountain. Priced at just $30-45, these meals present a great opportunity to sample the flavors of some of Chicago's finest chefs and restaurateurs. Advance tickets are highly recommended as seating does sell out. (Limit 4 tickets per ticket buyer)

Also, don't miss each of these acclaimed chefs showing off their skills at FREE cooking demonstrations at the Lifeway Foods Taste Kitchen.

Once again, students from the Washburne Culinary Institute will assist the chefs in food preparation and service. Founded more than 76 years ago, Washburne Culinary Institute is one of the oldest culinary schools in the nation, providing students with the latest culinary techniques along with essential hands-on experience to ensure they are equipped to work in Chicago's most successful restaurants, hotels, private clubs and other culinary establishments.
