More than peanuts and Crackerjacks as ballpark food goes gourmet

Two of my favorite things baseball and food team up when Ballpark Fare Goes Gourmet at The Park at Wrigley.

The event, part of the eXtraordinary chefs – eXtraordinary places series in celebration of Bon Appétit presents Chicago Gourmet’s 10th anniversary will take place on September 23.

The pitch: Which chef can spin the most unique gourmet twist on ball park food?

The players:

Fourteen celebrity chefs have accepted to run with the challenge to create “gourmet” ballpark food that will “knock it out of the park.”

The Fare:hautedog

Think “haute” dogs, upscale nachos, loaded fries and gourmet popcorn for starters–sure to be followed by some pinch-hitters and surprises.
