Adventures for intelligent foodies.

Join us for exciting culinary and literary adventures here in Chicago and around the world!  If you enjoy eating, reading, writing, cooking, dining out in great restaurants and immersing yourself in fascinating new cultures and cuisines, Litereati is for you!

Whether you're a professional chef, a food blogger or just someone who enjoys gourmet reading and good food shared with friends, you're welcome here at Litereati.

We get together for lively, delicious dinners out, book launch parties, food festivals, literary events, cooking classes, wine parties, volunteer opportunities and unique culinary experiences across Chicago and around the world.  Along the way, we recommend cookbooks, foodie fiction and culinary memoirs to accompany our events and whet your appetite for more.  We also publish a literary magazine featuring outstanding food writing, art and photography, so please let us know if you'd like to submit your own original work or help edit, design or promote the magazine.

Participate as your dreams, budget and comfort level allow.

Shawna Bohn, our Organizer, is a food writer, editor and diehard culinarian.  Our members are from every walk of life and share a passion for good food, literature, new recipes, travel and shared experiences.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
