If you can turn an ordinary dish into a culinary masterpiece, you may have what it takes to win Robins' Airman Chef Competition.

Modeled after the famous Food Network hit, "Iron Chef," the Airman Chef Competition - a timed cooking battle built around specific themed ingredients selected by a celebrity chef heading up each team - will take place at the Base Restaurant Feb. 27.

The event will begin with a 6 p.m. cocktail hour and live music.

Jon King, Robins' Base Restaurant manager, said the competition is intended for novice cooks. It may take a little more skill than boiling water, but we aren't looking for professional cooks by any means," he said.

The competition will feature four teams of four amateur chefs under the supervision of celebrity chefs from The Rookery, The Dovetail, Helms College and The Landings Golf Course. The teams will create tapas style servings of a three-course meal.

Judging will be done by the audience after each course, King said.
