The BA (Charity) Chili Cookoff was founded by a few chili-lovin´ expats looking to celebrate a little piece of home as well as doing some good in the process.
The BA Chili Cookoff is a celebration that gets people together for a good cause while enjoying some great food. The Chili Cookoff is by all means a contest. We rake the fields of expats and locals looking for cooks who would like to participate. Their chili will be judged by endless amounts of wanna-bies to professional judges to fellow cooks. The chili pot and its cook will also be subject to a People´s Choice award.
Each event is comprised of an endless number of chili cooks who are required to deliver a minimum of 5 liters of chili on the day of the event. Each cook is allotted his or her own booth for serving their home-made creation. All chili must be prepared from scratch and served naked. There will be NO GARNISH allowed (e.g. Cheese, onions, salsas, guacamole). All ingredients must be placed in Chili prior to its arrival. More details to follow. Please reference http://en.wikipedia....i/Garnish_(food
) if your in doubt.
All proceeds from from event are donated to a chosen charity; benefiting local people and interests.
