Top Chef tour - anyone seen them?

Top Chef has been touring the country with cooking classes. I know that this past week Stephanie Izard and Dale Levitski were in Chicago at our Green City Market, but unfortunately I was unable to go!

Has anyone been to their cooking demos? Please share!

  1. I was asking about this on the other thread about the tour but never got any replies. I would like to find out as well. I have a feeling that most people ended up not going due to lack of information or the inability to get tickets through the website. I would have gone to the one here in San Diego but I wasn't able to get tickets and certainly wasn't going to take time off work to go at 3pm on a Wednesday if I wasn't guaranteed to see anything.

    1. I was at the Green City Market on Wednesday. They had a big mobile truck set up with demos at 10:30, noon and 1 pm. I wasn't able to stay to see the demos, but did see Dale and Stephanie come into the market together @ 9:30 am. They were both pretty casual in appearance.

      I've seen Stephanie at the market the last three weeks in a row. I suspect she was doing some advance work or planning for the demos. What I wanted to do was follow her around to the various stands and just buy what she picked out for herself.

        You're so lucky to have seen here there so many times! I love her, and I totally would have followed her around, haha.

          She seems like the same really nice person she appeared to be on the show, but perhaps just a tad shy. I would have loved to have introduced myself, congratulated her and talked with her, but there was something I read -- maybe a bit of a private person -- that told me not to do that.

            I saw her demo at the CIA at Astor Place last night. She was awesome!
