Today at Lunch – The Daley Plaza Farmer's Market Chef Challenge

August 03 2011 - 10:53 PM

Thursday at high-noon three chefs square off to see who does what with the local produce at the 2011 COUNTRY Chef Challenge at the Daley Plaza Farmer’s Market.

This year the three chefs include Iliana Regan from One Sister underground dining, who overwhelmingly won our reader poll, Luca Corazzina, the Executive Chef at 312 Chicago and Chris Pandel Executive Chef and Partner at the Bristol.

Judging the challenge is Val Warner host of ABC 7’s Windy City Live, Bill Daley Food Critic from the Chicago Tribune and Josh Brusin the Founder and Editor of… wait, what?

That’s right. I’ll be there live and in person. If you’re at the market stop by and say hello! The challenge is similar to Iron Chef. Contestants get 30 minutes to shop and 30 minutes to cook… It starts at noon. Grab some food at the market and hang out. It should be fun!
