Yesterday we gave the grand tour of behind-the-scenes Ravinia to a group of young adults from Our Place in Winnetka and their chaperones. One of the highlights of this field trip was a visit to the dining pavilion kitchens with their industrial-sized machines. Executive Chef Tim Raddack not only had a hearty lunch waiting at the end of the kitchen tour, but he presented each participant with a chef’s toque –which he autographed. The group then checked up on the hosta garden they helped Ravinia plant in the spring before taking to the pavilion stage to sing and dance. Telling these young music-lovers all about Ravinia was as much fun for me as it was for them.
