10 Top Highlights from Food Network in Concert

by in Events, September 21st, 2014

Food Network in ConcertFrom morning until night, your favorite Food Network chefs and musical all-stars came together at Food Network in Concert on Saturday for a celebration of three things that are just better together: eats, drinks and tunes. Together with Chicago’s most-acclaimed chefs, the stars took over Ravinia — an outdoor festival space near the Windy City — for a jam-packed schedule of walk-around tastings, hands-on culinary demonstrations and sit-down meals alike, and it culminated in roof-raising concerts by Phillip Phillips and John Mayer. FN Dish experienced the sights, sounds and tastes firsthand as Chicago local Jeff Mauro, plus Alex Guarnaschelli, Anne Burrell, Geoffrey Zakarian, Jose Garces, Marc Murphy and Sunny Anderson, welcomed the crowd to lunches and dinners, posed for pictures with fans and dished on the soaring culinary scene in Chicago. Read on below to count down 10 of the day’s best moments, hear from some of the chefs and see photos of what went down on stage.

10. Blues, Brew and BBQ: With good music in the background and ice-cold beer in hand, diners could choose from some serious finger-lickin’ fare. The longest line was at the spare ribs station, but the host of the event, Marc, particularly enjoyed the pickle bar with flavors like Key lime chipotle, lemon ginger, and hot and sassy.

9. Birthday Shoutout: Phillips turned 24 on Saturday and in a total moment of spontaneity, concertgoers sang “Happy Birthday” in the middle of his set. The song (sang surprisingly in unison) was started by just a couple of fans but was quickly picked up by everyone in the pavilion and beyond into the lawn seats.
