Bring the ultimate taste of Chicago to your home with our James Beard Chicago Alumni: Deluxe Edition starring a dream-team roster of James Beard Award-winning and nominated chefs. This limited-edition box is from some of the city’s top restaurant talent that will make your cooking, snacking, and drinking game worthy of national acclaim.
What better way to celebrate one of the most prestigious culinary awards and the incredible chefs behind them than by filling your fridge, pantry, and bar with their very own products?
Enjoy Chef Sarah of Monteverde's Gnochetti for your next pasta night with a true Michelin-star restaurant experience. Top your pasta with your choice of sauce along with a spoonful of Chef Zubair of Wazwan's Sesame Tomatillo Achar for a deliciously satisfying meal.
After dinner, cozy up on the couch with a bag of Luella's Mix Popcorn from Chef Darnell of Luella's Southern Kitchen, a snack that combines two classic flavors of Chicago with both sweet caramel corn and savory cheese corn (with the addition of candied pecans for a little extra crunch)!
Give your tastebuds the gift of international flavor with Chef Zach of Galit's Hazelnut Duqqa. This hand-crafted blend offers a warm, nutty flavor that's brightened by fresh, citrusy herb flavors that's perfect for topping roasted vegetables for some textural depth or combining with olive oil and bread to create an appetizer that will definitely impress your dinner guests.
No need to spend $20 on avocado toast, because Chef Stephanie of This Little Goat's Chili Lime Chili Crunch is all you need to make your at-home avocado toast taste like it came straight from the trendiest cafe on the block.
Create the gourmet charcuterie board of your dreams with Erin of All Together Now!'s sweet, slightly tart Blackberry Thyme Jam and earthy, vinegary Pickled Golden Beets with Chile de Arbol.
Finally, complete your night with a hand-crafted drink that's mixed to perfection thanks to this jigger from mixologist Charles Joy in collaboration with Crafthouse by Fortessa.
This collaboration might sound too good to be true, but thanks to our friends at the James Beard Foundation, Choose Chicago, and the Illinois Restaurant Association it’s not. Trust us, you want in on this!
