Sneak Peek Soirée

| April 27, 2016 | Parties

Over 500 Chicago foodies came out to kick off Eats Week with Modern Luxury’s Sneak Peek Soiree event held at Venue One in the Fulton Market. Guests sipped on delicious cocktails by Casa Noble, CH Distillery, Goose Island and Beringer Wines and sampled savory tastings from Chicago’s top restaurants. The food was complimented by Style Matters' dueling DJs and experiential “food as art” activations; live models dressed in food garments, a wine stain painting of James Beard and food fashion illustrations, while attendees mingled with their favorite Chicago chefs in the city. The venue was impeccably decorated with vegetables by Mariano's, styled by Event Creative and also housed a one-of-a-kind ice lounge by Nadeau's Ice Sculptures for guests to socialize while seated on solid ice furniture. The evening was the beginning of the most exciting culinary celebration in honor of the James Beard Foundation Awards. The James Beard Foundation was established in Beard’s honor to provide scholarships to aspiring food professionals who’s mission is to celebrate and honor America’s diverse culinary heritage through programs that educate and inspire.
