This event was held on March 15, 2009 at Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
Attention culinary fans! In honor of Women's History Month, Stephanie Izard, last year's winner of Bravo's Top Chef (and the only woman to ever win the competition) will make a special appearance to demo her cooking and discuss her Top Chef experiences, culinary inspirations and Chicago restaurant endeavors.
Stephanie had recently closed her Mediterranean-influenced restaurant, Scylla, in order to take some time to travel and think about her next venture when she received the call from producers to participate in the show. She went into the experience with the wise mantra, "Just make it taste good," and decided not to worry about the surrounding drama. In the end, her focus paid off and Stephanie came away as the overall winner and was also voted fan-favorite. This event is co-sponsored by Zingerman's. Registration is not required for this event.
