What you'll learn in this tasting class:

Join us for a special event presented by Le Creuset as we welcome Chefs John and Karen Shields from Smyth + The Loyalist restaurants in Chicago's West Loop. The restaurants opened in mid 2016 and Smyth quickly was awarded four stars from the Chicago Tribune's Phil Vettel and the inclusion in the Michelin Guide. In 2017 Smyth + The Loyalist were named one of the Best New Restaurants in America by Bon Appetit Magazine and Smyth was bestowed with 2 Michelin stars in the 2018 guidebook.

This special event will showcase the Shields refined but approachable way with food and hospitality in a way that feels like you are in their home surround by friends. Share a taste, a glass of wine, and an afternoon with two stars of the Chicago restaurant scene.
