Showcasing countless cuisines, traditional techniques, fun twists and playful competitions, distinguished chefs leave it all on the Bon Appétit Main Stage. Crowd pleasers Carla Hall, Art Smith and Lorena Garcia return to share the soundtrack to their kitchens. Everyone’s favorite trio – Jimmy Bannos, John Hogan and Tony Mantuano – are back for an always-entertaining roast, while new talent like Joe Flamm joins fellow BRAVO Top Chef Season 15 “cheftestants” Bruce Kalman and Joe Sasto to show off their pasta-making prowess. And speaking of Top Chefs, Stephanie Izard may have a different take on the music theme…maybe some dance moves included. Bon Appétit Editor-in-Chief Adam Rapoport and other all-star emcees guide the program with flair.

“We are so excited for the third year of Fulton Market Harvest Fest as a way to celebrate all of the amazing things happening in our neighborhood of Chicago! It’s going to be our best and biggest with an amazing line-up of chefs and bands,” said founder Stephanie Izard. “Between the kitchen stage demos, culinary classes, dinner events, and more - there is truly something for everyone."

The competition is steep but Joe’s not shy. Vote for him as many times as you can and help him secure both Bravo and E! fame in one year. His wife’s friends will go nuts on their group text. And there are other benefits, too, but that will be funny.
