Lincolnwood Fire Department news

Excerpts from the

At the third annual Iron Chiefs Cook-Off, Lincolnwood’s police and fire personnel battled it out as they tested their culinary skills in an Iron Chef-style cooking competition based on the hit TV show.

In the Village of Lincolnwood’s third annual event, the police made a pasta dish with meatballs and firefighters made a Parmesan crusted chicken pasta with breaded zucchini. Each team, with four cooks, had a timed 25 minutes to pull it off with their on-the-spot homemade pasta. This year’s event was the tiebreaker between the departments following the police department’s 2018 victory.

The winning recipe is a preferred Sunday meal often prepared at the Lincolnwood Fire Department.

The event, featuring Lincolnwood resident and “Iron Chef America” judge Mario Rizzotti, drew an estimated 150 people. It was a fundraiser sponsored by Lincolnwood’s human relations commission with proceeds benefiting the Niles Township Food Pantry.

Also judging was WGN-TV’s Sean Lewis, chef Fabio Viviani, and chef Katsuji Tanabe.
