  • About the event

    Timing: August  31 through November 1


    The Daily Herald Media Group is excited to host the 7th Annual Cook of the Week Challenge where we invite 16 home cooks to compete against each other for the chance to earn the title of Cook of the Year.  Over the course of 12 weeks, our challengers will be asked to create an original recipe using secret ingredients supplied by our sponsors. Each week, we have a panel of judges voting on their favorites. The top four contestants will compete live at the Cook of the Week Finale that will take place on November 6 at the Westin Hotel in Itasca. This is a reader favorite that draws more than 500 guests.  Coverage includes print, online and the event.
