01 Nov Outdoor Mindset's Chili Cook Off
This past Sunday, October 28th, 2012 Savory Cuisines Catering participated in the 3rd annual Chili Cook-off sponsored by Outdoor Mindset at the Avery Brewing Company. This benefit and silent auction is always a huge success which is great because it’s for a good cause. Outdoor Mindset helps to unite people and gives hope to those dealing with neurological challenges through sharing the love of the outdoors and nature. The programs they provide give those with neurological disorders and their families the opportunity to explore all the healing benefits Mother Nature has to offer. It has been proven that being active and getting to experience the outdoors directly affects neuropsychological functions in addition to behaviors and attitudes especially in regards to challenges most will face in their lifetime.
All the proceeds collected from the Chili Cook-off directly benefited the non-profit and will be used to provide Outdoor Mindset’s programs at no cost. General admission for the Chili Cook-off were $20 per person and included unlimited samples of chili and a free Avery Beer. They also offered special discounted tickets for Outdoor Mindset members, green tickets for $100 which came with a free t-shirt plus 100 votes for their favorite contestant, and prepaid voting token options as well. The winner of the contest was determined according to donations $1=1 vote. Outdoor Mindset’s Chili Cook-off is a great opportunity for friends and family to get together for some delicious beer and out of the world chili while giving back to their community at the same time.
A few of the entries from this years cook-off included chili con carne, green chili, Mexican style chili, white chili, turkey chili, vegetarian chili, and black bean chili. Some recipes were spicy while other were mild but all were delicious! We were proud to be part of the great event and would like to thank everyone who voted for our recipes. We are looking forward to another excellent challenge next year!
