Eat, Drink and Give Back!

Eat, drink and give back with Woodford Reserve this month as we partner with Woodford Reserve’s Pairing and Sharing Program.

There’s nothing we enjoy chronicling more at Edible Chicago than food and drink makers getting together to do good for the world.   Now through September 17, join Woodford Reserve and Edible Chicago along with more than 15 restaurants across the city in celebrating the 30th anniversary of the late Charlie Trotter’s famed eponymous restaurant.

To honor Trotter's life’s work, the bar and culinary teams of participating restaurants are creating pairings that highlight their culinary chops and the sweet, earthiness of Woodford Reserve Bourbon. For each cocktail sold, Woodford Reserve will donate $1 to the Trotter Project ($10K max donation), a mentorship program for “budding interest in the culinary arts, along with the hospitality and service industries.”

Chef and restaurateur Charlie Trotter changed the landscape of the culinary world, not just with his Michelin-starred restaurants but by serving as a mentor to countless high school students, fostering the next generation of world-class chefs.

We raise a glass to the next generation of talent in food and drink. Here's to opening doors and inspiring minds through the culinary arts!
