Chicago-area chefs demonstrate globally inspired dishes at 2014 Fall French Market

This weekend, thousands of people came to shop, eat and create à la française at the 10th annual Lycée Français de Chicago Fall French Market, which took place Friday, November 7 through Sunday, November 9.

The French  fête boasted more than 75 vendors selling specialty and artisan goods. Shoppers didn’t need to worry about running out of energy with the multitude of gastronomic offerings at the market. Attendees could purchase fresh bread, baked goods, and coffee from participating vendors, and also dine on beef bourignon, quiche, croquet monsieur and more at the parent and student-run Le Bistrot Parisien.

In between eating and shopping, visitors were able to learn culinary “tricks of the trade” from participating chefs and experts who conducted cooking demonstrations on Saturday and Sunday. From French macarons to Italian Polpette Alla Napoletana, Chicago-area chefs kept participants captivated – and full – as they shared tips on how to make some of their favorite dishes.

Here is a look at the seven chefs – and one coffee brewmaster – who led demonstrations at the Fall French Market along with the delectable items they cooked, baked and brewed for attendees:
