Appetizers before the Chili Cook Off Competition

Each of the teams made their own version chili for the judge.  We provided all of the ingredients and equipment.  We showed the teams how to get the most flavor out of their ingredients in under an hour.  Contestants chose their ingredients to create their chili. One of the teams created a vegetarian chili which was well received by the  special guest judge.

 During the cook off event,  special challenges were given by Chefs. The challenge winners  could choose additional ingredients for their chili.

“We hired Chef Pharrell for a Mothers Day dinner for our family. Very simply, she did what she said that she would do! She was easy to work with to create the menu and very accomodating to our dietary issues. Food looked great and tasted great. It was appreciated by all and made the day all that more special.”
