The Amazing Race kicks off in Lake Bluff, Ill. on Sunday, September 10 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Grille No.43 (28800 Waukegan Rd). There is a unique twist on this event as Chicago will launch the first ever Kid/Adult pair up, as well as producing the first Suburban Chicago CFC event. The Amazing Race continues on Monday, September 18 from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. at Smoke Justis (302 Court St. Covington, Ky.).
Teams of four to six will fight to run for their pantry in various locations selected by the CFC Competition Board. Teams have 45 minutes to run on foot to their pantry locations. The time clock starts when the first team gets back to their stations. The team will have 60 minutes to cook! Judges are looking for the Gourmet Plate Up that will deliver the perfect bite. Competition is fierce with a high-energy kitchen environment and time crunch. Teams must create a cohesive final plate for the judges, a challenging task, since they won’t know what will be in the pantry until they get to the location!

The pantry, sponsored by Reinhart Foodservice, which provides fresh ingredients that allow the competitors the opportunity to battle for the best dish, Bull Outdoor Grills and Sam Adams.
