A while back I wrote about the great organization, Common Threads, which uses cooking classes to educate children on the importance of nutrition and well being, and to foster an appreciation of cultural diversity (see that post here). Its annual fundraiser, World Festival, is coming up this Monday at Soldier Field and is not to be missed. The students will be there along with A-List chefs from ChicagoLand and across the country, dishing up an array of culinary treats. The honorary host is adorable Gail Simmons of Top Chef fame, and our own ChicagoNow blogger, Candance Jordan, is co-host. Tickets can be purchased here. Have fun and happy eating!
