Matt Timms' popular "takedown" competition comes to Detroit in the form of the Bacon Takedown, which goes down at the Magic Stick on Sept. 21. Billed as "America's most important food competition," the events pit amateur chefs against each other in a quest for glory (and cash and cookware prizes).

Timms says he has plenty of spots still open for aspiring chefs — and he's giving free 15 lbs. of bacon to all competitors to use. Think you have what it takes? Email Timms at chilitakedown@gmail.com or check out the event website for more information to sign up.



The Bacon Takedown is from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Sept. 21 at the Magic Stick, 4120 Woodward Ave, Detroit; 313-833-9700; majesticdetroit.com. Tickets are $15.
