When Bordeaux-born chef Vincent Colombet arrived in Chicago in 2004, he looked long and hard for stores that sold French food and ingredients. He couldn't find any, so he set to the task himself. Cook Au Vin began as a catering company and has now expanded to a much larger operation that not only lets Chicagoans sample French food, but also teaches them to prepare it themselves. On-site cook-and-dine classes include appetizers, entrées, desserts, sides, and, of course, wine. Cook Au Vin has plans to expand its offering of French food in the city by opening locations that sell traditional pastries and authentic French crêpes, wraps and sandwiches. And Colombet can no longer complain that Chicago lacks a French cheese and sausage counter; his own shop now sells those items. - Betsy Mikel
