Chicago has a celebrated culinary scene. While not every person can harness the talent of the city’s acclaimed chefs, even the budding culinarian can master a variety of cooking techniques and flavors. Fortunate to have Eataly located in Chicago, food lovers and aspiring chefs can glean inspiration from this Italian mecca. To celebrate both Italian cuisine’s past and future, Eataly Chicago will host Identita Golose master classes and wine tasting this October.
On October 6 and 7, Eataly will present several Identita Golose events. The events over the two day period will feature interactive chef demos, wine tastings, wine pairing and an overall celebration of Italian cuisine.
For the culinary adventurous or those want to learn more about Italian cuisine, the two interactive chef demos on October 6 will showcase modern techniques and methods for preparing contemporary Italian cuisine. The Master Classes will focus on a Homage to Italy. The first class at 12 p.m. will be taught by Chicago’s Andrew Zimmerman of Sepia and Heinz Beck of La Pergola, Rome. The second class will begin at 4 p.m. and will be taught by Chicago’s Giuseppe Tentori of GT Fish & Oyster and Cristina Bowerman Glass Hostaria of Rome. In both classes, each chef will create a dish that best represents an “Homage to Italy.” While the class is not hands on, each guest will be able to sample the chefs’ dishes and paired Italian wines. Each class is $75 each and can be purchased at the Eataly website.
Following the Master classes, October 7 brings an exquisite wine tasting to Eataly. The large format wine tasting will feature samplings from world renowned vineyards in Italy. These wines will be accompanied by bites. Wineries at this event include Bastianich, Mirafiore, Banfi, Cantina Terlano, Montanaro, Tasca D’Almerita, Ferrari, and Fontanafredda , and more. Tickets for this event are $40 and can be purchased on the Eataly website.
