Army Chefs versus Robert Irvine

Who will come out on top?

Taste of Chicago is a yearly food extravaganza and cookoff held every July in the heart of the Windy City. This year, our chefs will be participating in a cookoff with celebrity chef and talk show host Robert Irvine.

If you're interested in becoming a chef, there is no better opportunity to ply your cooking skills than becoming an Army Soldier. The Army takes food preparation and distribution seriously, that's why the 92G culinary specialist MOS is regarded as one of the most important jobs in the Army.
