About Foodphiles

WTTW’s original web series FOODPHILES profiles a diverse group of Chicago area restaurateurs, chefs, baristas, gin enthusiasts, and others. In each webisode, FOODPHILES takes you into the kitchen, behind the bar, and into the field to introduce you to a chef or restaurateur who prepares food and libations as they share their personal stories and insights about the meaning of their work, how they got into the hospitality business, and why they have such a passion for what they do. As they talk, you’ll get a bird’s eye view of many of their raw ingredients, learn how they are sourced, and observe the often intricate processes of transforming them into mouthwatering dishes.
