Dishes will range from savory to sweet and will feature a main ingredient. Sharpen your knifes, this is a call to all home chefs looking to be named Chicago’s next cookoff king or queen. Winners will not only achieve culinary glory, but will be flown to Brooklyn, NY to compete in the National cookoff title, the super-bowl of cookoffs held at Brooklyn Brewery. Do you have what it takes to win?”
