18 things we ate (and drank) at Chicago Gourmet that will make you hungry AF

Simply put, Chicago Gourmet is a foodie playground where the only limit that exists is the size of your stomach. We ate, drank and frolicked our way through the annual Bon Appetit festival all weekend, stopping only for water and sleep. Along the way, we met some of Chicago's top chefs, pasty chefs, mixologists, sommeliers and brewers. We sipped bubbly, nibbled macarons, stuffed our faces with lobster and indulged in a cocktail or two (tough job, huh?).
