Working with Chicago’s Best and Where’s Lisa?

I had a great opportunity to meet and work alongside some of Chicago's top chefs this summer. As part of the Museum of Science and Industry's popular Smart Home: Green + Wired exhibit, I was asked to help facilitate a summer-long series of cooking demos at the museum. The line-up included:

Bittersweet's Judy Contino, Hearty Boys' Dan Smith, NAHA's Carrie Nahabedian, BOKA's Giuseppe Tentori and even cast members from the run-away-hit musical Jersey Boys.



I’m back cooking at the Museum again Saturday October 10th, along with more of Chicago’s best chefs. This day-long series of cooking demos is part of the opening weekend kick-off of You! The Experience, a brand new, 15,000-square-foot exhibit. The demo line-up focuses on healthy cooking and includes:

10:30 a.m.
Michelle Garcia
Bleeding Heart Bakery

11:30 a.m.
Mike Cisternino
Tavern at the Park

12:30 p.m.
Joshua Linton
ajasteak

1:30 p.m.
Ina Pinkney
Ina’s

2:30
Lisa Williams
Lisa Cooks Allergen Free

It’s a rare chance to check-out some fantastic cooking demos, and explore the largest science museum in the Western Hemisphere.

If you can’t make it to the Museum, please visit me at another one of my classes, many of which are free. Remember, who says you can’t eat well with food allergies???
