"Auditions for the FOX show are being held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 26 at the Congress Plaza Hotel, 520 S. Michigan Avenue, in Chicago.

I'd love to cook for "CHEF", but I'm not a give me a bunch of shit, and try to make something tasty out of It. I really don't like all the crazy stuff they cook. I guess I'm kind of a Comfort Food type cook. No Oysters, Calamari, Caviar. None of that exotic stuff.

I love watching this show as well as Top Chef. Hubby likes to pick on me wanting to know when I am going to cook the same things. I always tell him, if they showed the dish start to finish, I could probably do it. Recording every step along the way of course.

Toad, that was my first thought: squid, tofu, weird spices or liquors, or items I've never heard of. I love to cook, but I don't think I'd enjoy the pressure they put on contestants.

KK, Being food a lot of us never heard of, how would I know what to do with it? Some of the PLANT life they use, I have no clue. Not to even mention the portion of food they make. Funny, but I wonder If ordinary people that get to eat this stuff, while out with STUFFY friends actually like It? AGED steaks, SHOULD be called "SPOILED STEAKS"
