Is It Chili in Here, Or Is It Just Me?

This Weekend was the 20th annual Chili Cook Off here at The Culinary Institute of America.

Every year, students ponder the perfect team name, labor over the most creative decorations, and most importantly, slave over the greatest chili the students and the judges have ever had the pleasure of tasting, all in hopes of securing the coveted title of Chili Champions.
This year, fifteen teams got the chance to impress students, staff and the locals with their chili.

Instead of being one of the thousand individuals who got to taste the chili, I was one of people chosen to set up, operate, and break down said event. All in all, it wasn't too bad of an experience, I mean hey, I got free soda and a snazzy staff t-shirt.

Set Up

Even the CIA runs on Dunkin

The competition was very interesting this year. We had a firetruck, dancing chili peppers, cattle and a few students who just could not escape business casual. To sum it all up in two words: Great Success!

Oh yea, and the winner was:
Team Smokes a Lot. Congrats you guys.
