Some days my life feels a little like a Hollywood movie or a fantastic novel. Maybe even an Italian Opera. It all depends on what day of the week it is. I want to share with you a little ditty about a chance social-media connection, a scheduled meeting, and a six-hour food tour that could play out as one of the most interesting gastronomic adventures of my life. David Rosengarten — the legendary chef and culinary genius — posted a story on Facebook. I commented. The next thing I knew, we exchanged a whole ﬂurry of e-mails. Lo and behold, with one message this Chef-of-Chefs promised a meeting with me for his next trip to Chicago.
