900 N. North Branch Street
Renowned southern chef Kevin Gillespie has made a special trip north just to spread the gospel of Dixie cuisine to the Culinary Historians of Chicago. We invited Chef Kevin not only because he passionately honors the history and tradition of the South, but because he is also constantly evolving new dishes that fit seamlessly into the region's culture. Please join us as Chef Kevin explores the roots of his native Georgia cooking, from the plantations of the coast to the utilitarian kitchens of the mountains. He will also discuss the "new" South and how the region’s changing population is influencing the way people view cuisine. Chef Kevin will also share stories from his new cookbook, Fire in My Belly.
