Chef's Table presented by Jenn-Air celebrating CS Magazine's July Restaurant Issue benefiting DIFFA/Chicago


On Thursday, I attended a fabulous celebration in honor of CS Magazine's  July Restaurant issue benefiting DIFFA/Chicago. CS welcomed the best chefs in Chicago to cook their finest dishes in premiere Jenn-Air test kitchens on the penthouse level of The Reid Murdoch Building. I would love to have a Jenn-Air kitchen to cook in, each one was better than the other. I tasted cuisine from over ten top chefs and sipped Mionetto champagne, and specialty cocktails created by mixologist Adam Seger while supporting a great cause. The floral arrangement by Hello Darling were glamorous and complimented the high-end dishes provided by the chefs. DJ Megan Taylor spun hot beats outside via an incredible rooftop deck, providing unbelievable and breathtaking views of Chicago. It was the perfect evening! Jenn-Air and CS auctioned some amazing packages with 100% of funds benefiting DIFFA Chicago. Tickets were $150 and I highly recommend attending this event next year!
