Chili Cookoff: Austin

Recommended Posts

Austin expects to see fiery competition at the Dell Jewish Community Center in April as teams, families, and chili aficionados from all denominations attend Austin’s first annual Kosher Chili Cook-off. Chili chefs and their teams will offer their chili concoctions to celebrity judges John Kelso, Coach Darrell and Edith Royal, and Chancellor Mark Yudof, who will award trophies for the best in "Beef," "Specialty Turkey," "Specialty Veggie," and "People's Choice" chili dishes. There will also be an award for “Best Decorated Booth”.

Besides the cook-off and tastings, there will be music, drinks, beer, and loads of family entertainment. There will also be plenty of people for people watching.

The Kosher Chili Cook-off idea comes from Tiferet Israel in Dallas, who will be holding their 12th annual Kosher Chili Cook-off this year.
