From small social gatherings of family and friends to large scale commercial competitions the chili cook-off has carved itself a beloved place in American culture. Just such a competition is taking place in Plymouth, Indiana. It’s going to be a test of culinary prowess as the gloriously spicy battle royale is happening today. It’s a winner takes all, standing room only, fight for the bragging rights as Champion of The 2nd Annual Kessler Crane Chili Cook-Off. Will last year’s champion Jason Woodford continue his domination of the inter-office competitive chili circuit, will an upstart from Philadelphia topple the throne, will an unexpected dark horse candidate snatch the crown? Only time will tell.
May the best chili win.
This year also features the debut break out of the Ham and Bean category. Will Eric Kessler’s entry have him living high on the hog or will someone else be bringing home the bacon?
Stay tuned. We’ll be spilling the beans on the results later.
