Join Chicago’s most celebrated chefs for an evening of exemplary and unusual culinary concoctions at our first annual Key Ingredient Cook-Off. Inspired by the Reader’s James Beard Award-winning series, the Key Ingredient Cook-Off will see 26 chefs (from the likes of Balena, Blackbird, El Ideas, Sprout, Nellcote, Trenchermen, and more) go head-to-head using one of five ingredients—all originally chosen by chefs participating in our Key Ingredient series.
Sample the fruits of the chefs’ competitive labor, decide who pulled off the most impressive feat, and enjoy libations from Chicago’s City Winery, River North Beer, Tenzing, Four Roses, and Olmeca Altos. Get in on the action early at the VIP hour, during which Scofflaw will be mixing up cocktails and serving up bites, plus enjoy first access to the event.
