"Key Ingredient" YouTube series

Over the past year or so Chicago Reader's been doing a YouTube series of 3-6 minute videos where a chef at a Chicago restaurant does a dish using a certain ingredient. The concept is that after doing the ingredient the chef "challenges" another Chicago chef with a different ingredient.

It's fun if you (like me) enjoy watching cooks figure out how to approach an ingredient. Sort of like Chopped, except they get a while to think about ingredients and play with them. There are apparently dozens of videos, and you can find them here:


...or if Chowhound doesn't like direct links searching "Chicago reader key ingredient" will probably get you into them.
