One of the godfathers of cultural gastronomy in terms of established world cuisines, French fare merits celebration and adoration, which is why the French-American Chamber of Commerce in Chicago (FACC)‘s 29th Annual Passport to France is such an esteemed affair. This November 21st event is an apt celebration of all things French gastronomy, in tune with the annual release of the latest crop of Beaujolais Nouveau.

Passport to France is bigger and more delicious than ever this year, hosted in the Union League Club of Chicago‘s fifth floor ballroom, sixth floor ballroom, and fifth floor spirits lounge, each one laden with chefs, restaurants, and vendors galore. A VIP preview takes place from 5:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m., followed by general admission from 6:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. VIP Union League members pay $100, while non-members pay $125. General admission costs $70 for members and $85 for non-members. Get out and celebrate French cuisine in all its glory.
