Do you have what it takes to be the next Master Chef? Home cooks are invited to put their best dish forward at an open casting call later this month in Chicago.

Auditions for the FOX show are being held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 26 at the Congress Plaza Hotel, 520 S. Michigan Avenue, in Chicago.

To qualify, interested cooks need to download and complete the show’s application and bring the dish they think will most impress the judges.

Cooks must be 18 by January 1, 2016; be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident; have never worked as a professional chef or had a job cooking as a primary source of employment.
