'Hell's Kitchen' Chef’s scallops coming to St. Charles event
Dana Cohen, a Season 10 finalist on Fox’s reality cooking series “Hell’s Kitchen,” will be visiting Chicago for the first time this weekend for the Chicago Food and Wine Festival.
As a graduate of the Culinary Institute of a America and an experienced cooking instructor, Cohen will be wielding her “Hell’s Kitchen” signature dish, pan-seared scallops, during a live cooking demonstration at the event Saturday at Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles.

Kane County Chronicle features editor Kara Silva got a chance to talk with Cohen about food, catching up with former “Hell’s Kitchen” cast-mates and life after nearly winning one of reality television’s greatest cooking competitions.
Kara Silva: Are you looking forward to the festival?
Dana Cohen: Yeah, I’m really excited. The best thing is that [the event] is for a bunch of great causes, a few of which are near and dear to me as well. So, it’s nice to see that [the event] is for some really nice charities, so I’m happy to be part of that. And then anywhere there’s good food, I love to be.
