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.

Kathy M. · June 18, 2013
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.
Zachary A. · April 22, 2013
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!
