HMSHost _ Channel Your Inner Chef

Something’s cooking at Chicago O’Hare Airport 

The second annual Channel Your Inner Chef cooking competition take place March 22 in front of a live audience inside Terminal 2 at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport.

Hosted by HMSHost and the Chicago Department of Aviation, the competition pits five finalists against each other in a 30-minute timed cook-off with the challenge of creating an original recipe from a bounty of ingredients revealed to them only at the start of the event.

Top prize is the chance for the winning chef to have his or her dish featured on the menu of an HMSHost-operated restaurant at O’Hare, two round-trip airline tickets for a flight within the continental U.S. and a VIP trip for two to attend the James Beard Awards Gala on May 2, 2016 in Chicago.

The cook-off will be held post-security in O’Hare’s Terminal 2 and will also feature live music and a secondary stage with cooking demonstrations and sample dishes from HMSHost-operated restaurants at O’Hare.
