Rebecca Wheeler offers Chicago visitors and locals an unforgettable experience that’s off the typical tourist path. We go deep into the ethnic neighborhoods that are the heart and soul of the immigrant diversity Chicago is famous for. Each food tour is private for your group of 1-10 guests. Rebecca Wheeler is a cooking instructor and world traveler who serves as a cultural ambassador for Chicago’s diverse ethnic neighborhoods. Each tour features plenty of carefully selected tastings along with authentic insights into the history and cultural significance of the cuisine, backed by her own culinary travels and studies in these countries. The result is a fun, personal and mouth-watering learning experience that will last beyond the tour into your own kitchen and future dining experiences.

If you're curious to learn about a Chicago neighborhood through food--book a tour with Rebecca Wheeler. She is wonderful. Very knowledgable and personable. She picked the best restaurants and grocery stores, ordering a variety of foods for us to taste and explore.

I've lived in Chicago for a long time, and it was such a treat to be taken in depth to some of the places I've only driven past and wondered about. Very educational and delicious too!
