Chicago Men Compete to Be Crowned King of the Kitchen
Cooking may be considered by some to be a dying art form, but six Chicago men are so confident in their cooking skills that they are going to face off in a cooking competition to benefit the Forecast Foundation.
Here, rolling out contributor Kobie Randolph, one of the competing chefs, shares some of his most memorable cooking experiences.
How did you learn how to cook?
In the summertime when [was] out of school and my parents [were] at work, I was like 13 or 14, I would be hungry and there would be food in the refrigerator, but the food would usually be frozen. So I used to watch the Food Network, and [got] creative and start[ed] trying things, because cooking’s like art. You have your foundation. You lay your foundation, then you just add on top of it what you think might look good, what you think might taste good.
