Learn to cook with garden-fresh ingredients all summer long at the Garden Chef Series. Noted chefs prepare recipes in the Regenstein Fruit & Vegetable Garden’s open-air amphitheater.
Free; regular parking and Garden admission fees apply for nonmembers. Seating in the amphitheater is on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Regenstein Fruit & Vegetable Garden is the Midwest's headquarters for fruit and vegetable gardening information. It exhibits the best edible plants to grow in the Chicago area. Interpretive signs explain the organic growing techniques used throughout the Garden. Through the Garden's Windy City Harvest Youth Farm program, seasonal produce from the Fruit & Vegetable Garden is used in the food in the Garden View Café. Seating is first-come, first-served for these free demonstrations. We'll feature recipes from the Garden's participating chefs, past and present.
