The kitchen is statistically the most dangerous room in a home because it contains the highest concentration of knives, open flames, and pots full of semi-living lobsters. Learn to cook somewhere else with today's Groupon to The Great American Cooking Expo at the Arlington Park Racetrack on November 13 and 14 (two-day passes are $20 online, $30 at the door). The third annual exhibition will feature two days of live demonstrations by celebrated local food artists and more than 140 tasty, sample-heavy booths featuring gourmet food, wine, and beer exhibitors, including Whole Foods Market, Ravenswood Winery, and Samuel Adams. The demonstrations, open to all expo attendees, will dole out tips and tricks for each meal of the day (dinner, breakfast, Nash, and Young), as well as advice on whipping up exciting, fruitcake-free holiday treats. The expo has strollable beer and wine gardens and more than 100 TV screens to stream the Chicago Bears as they face the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Aspiring chefs aged 12 and under are free with adult admission.

The Great American Cooking Expo

The Great American Cooking Expo presents "It's Just a Taste: Food and Wine Festival" brings together celebrity chefs, culinary trendsetters, and food and wine connoisseurs for two days of eating, drinking, and education. The event fills Arlington Park Racecourse’s 50,000 square feet with delicious aromas generated by more than 100 exhibitors, who alternate between demonstrating advanced techniques and providing tasty morsels and wine samples for the crowds. While professionals show off the methods that produce exceptional flavors, more than 25 premium beverage manufacturers offer up the perfect wines to pair. They provide more than 125 wines to sample, along with ample spirits and cordials.

The event’s organizers hope to provide more than fleeting culinary satisfaction. They also organize stations to help generate menu ideas, teach specific recipes, or inspire visitors to find the perfect gift for a culinary-inclined friend, whether it’s a set of new pots or a kidnapped celebrity chef.

Customer Reviews

we loved it and will be back next time. hopefully there will be a groupon for it too. by limiting the entrance fee we were able to spend more on the vendors.

While I really enjoyed The Great American Cooking Expo., it seemed that the day I attended (Sunday) was much more alcohol oriented, rather than cooking related. There was amazing amount of wines, liquors and beers to try but very little food!
