The Grand Cru, presented by UnitedHealthcare, took on a new track in 2018. A new sound track. In conjunction with the year's music theme, first-time co-hosts, Graham Elliot and Matthias Merges, invited fellow superstar chefs to provide tasty translations of their favorite tunes. Guests also enjoyed expertly curated wine selections from presenting sponsor, Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits, while Master Sommelier Serafin Alvarado - also a guitarist - drew on his musical passion to unearth elite pours.
Plans are already underway for the Grand Cru in 2019, and you won't want to miss it. Tickets are not yet on sale so please check back soon for more information. In addition to the Grand Cru ticket, attendees must have a Chicago Gourmet Main Event ticket to access to the exclusive tasting.
