It’s no secret Chicago is known for its delicious food. Between Chicago-style hotdogs and deep dish pizza, we’re home to many fan favorites.
On top of the delicious food though, Chicago is also known for its incredible culinary scene.
Last Thursday, April 20, was just one example of Chicago’s culinary scene bringing people together and Yummie Network’s very own, Beth Peterson was lucky enough to attend.
Community Dining partnered with The Yellow Tractor Project to create a four-part dinner series entitled “Delight your Belly and your Brain.” These dinners all feature themes, aiming to promote a healthier lifestyle.
The Founder of Community Dining, Paul Sippil explained the purpose of these dinners is to bring people together and get them talking about important issues.
“I hope the guests have an authentic, substantive social experience. Something they haven’t experienced before,” Sippil said.
The dinner series’ event was held at EuroLuxe Interiors Chicago and featured a speech on nutrition by Dr. Geeta-Maker Clark, as well as a delicious garden-fresh meal prepared by Chef Hanne Dobre.
Dobre made German sauerbraten with beef tenderloin and a leg of lamb. All the meat used was hormone free, pasture raised, grass fed Australian Beef and Lamb. Dobre began prepping the beef nine days prior to the event and the guests had nothing but good things to say about the delicious meal.
“The guests were impressed with how easy it was to cut the meat. It was a positive experience,” Sippil said.
All in all, this event was a success and Yummie Network is looking forward to attending the dinner series’ next event.
