I'm a Canadian, who you can find on www.twitter.com/freshguru. I'm in Chicago this weekend 14/03/2014 for the annual IACP conference. if you are not familiar that is the International Association Culinary Professionals. I joined way back when Julie Child was still alive and lovely and a huge supporter of this group. I signed up for the full conference (but I will miss out on Monday as I have to head back to Canada due to work reasons). It looks like my Saturday afternoon and evening schedule is empty. So I am looking for suggestions, ideas and a dinner invite (okay that might be too much to ask for). Anyhow I want to do a self guided food tour that is downtown Chicago or on the metro system - looking for ideas - and if you could like to join me on a food adventure please do. This is a very late request. Posting this on a Thursday night. Your ideas, suggestions and thoughts would be welcomed. While I have lurked on this system before I confess I don't now all the manners yet. Cheers.
