As we mentioned yesterday, an improved layout and relatively fortunate weather meant that guests could attend Chicago Gourmet and simply focus on the chefs and the food. Yesterday, we took a look at the culinary talent that stuffed into Millennium Park last weekend. Today, it’s time to see what those chefs actually cooked.

The dishes we encountered were as varied and vibrant as the Chicago food scene. You could score ceviche right next to braised pig tail and cupcakes after cold kohlrabi soup. Though we tried, we certainly weren’t able to sample everything from the festival. But here are some of the more colorful highlights. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the stunning pictures from our resident photographer, Huge Galdones.
