Enjoy an Edible Escapes weekend in Chicago this October with Alberta Food Tours’ guide Liane Faulder

There are some cities you just don’t want to miss. Chicago is one of them.

From Thursday, October 12 to Monday October 16, 2017, Alberta Food Tours invites you to join our guide Liane Faulder as she travels with a small group of devoted food adventurers to experience one of the great eating – and entertainment – centers in the United States. Liane has been a writer with The Edmonton Journal for over 30 years and has led 10 previous culinary excursions across Canada, the United States and Europe. Chicago has been on her bucket list for a long time and Alberta Food Tours, Inc. president Karen Anderson has designed this itinerary after three research trips in 2015 and 2016.

With some 2.7 million residents, Chicago is big enough to be home to a large number of innovative chefs experimenting with new food trends while continuing to nurture the signature flavours of Chicago, including deep dish pizza, hot dogs, Mexican food and the classic steak.

Named in 2015 as one of the 10 best food cities in the United States by the Washington Post, the city boasts an Eataly – one of chef Mario Batali’s signature food halls. There, as one of Liane’s guests, you will enjoy a pizza cooking class, and the chance to make your own delicious Neapolitan-style pie –  served with wine – and yielding recipes that can bring Chicago home to your own kitchen when the trip is over.

You’ll also visit celebrity chef Rick Bayless’ Frontera Grill for Mexican fare, plus sample an Asian feast at Sunda – an award-winning restaurant representing America’s New Asian movement.

During your four-night stay, you will enjoy action packed food tours and numerous rich eating experiences, while still having time to enjoy other exciting elements offered by the city – from great live theatre and jazz, to a tour of The Art Institute of Chicago and the city’s renowned architectural society boat tour.

This tour is limited to 14 guests, so book now to make sure you are firmly at the center of Liane’s food, fun and adventure tour of Chicago.
