Guest Chef Thomas Bowman ‘Pops Up’ at Ravinia with Baume and Brix

The exciting chef Thomas Bowman, who added a dash of mad scientist to the kitchen while leading iNG Restaurant, has been dabbling in “pop up” restaurants recently, and he will pop in at Ravinia as guest chef July 31. Bowman opens his new restaurant, Baume & Brix, in Chicago next month. Baume refers to a French scale that measures the density of liquids, and brix refers to a measurement of the mass ratio of dissolved sugar to water, or how “sweet” something is.
