Rock Your Palate with Graham Elliot






Pinch me please, was this all a dream?? I was a guest of Chef Graham Elliot for Mastercard's Priceless Chicago "Rock Your Palate" event.  The evening was an one-of-a-kind experience, so priceless!  "Rock Your Palate" blends Art, Food, & Music for a night filled with creativity that rocked all your senses!  The series was held at Floating World Gallery in Lincoln Park and featured music by i am van ghost. This was a special experience and I savored every minute, thank you again Graham for feeding my soul with your great culinary creations. Additionally, I wanted every single piece of artwork for my home from all the Chicago Music festivals. For the last 3 years at Lollapalooza I have noshed on Graham's truffle & Parmesan popcorn. He is the mastermind and culinary director for this awesome Chicago music festival.
