CHILI COOK-OFF TO BE PART OF THE FUN FAMILY FESTIVAL AT AFHM

The ICS Chili Cook-Off is certain to be one of the spicier events at the Fun Family Festival at the American Farm Heritage Museum October 8.   WGEL spoke with Galen Peters who said ICS, or the International Chili Society, is a nationwide organization which sponsors chili cook-offs across the country.  You must be a member of the organization to participate in an ICS chili cook-off. Competition cooks and tasters always have a fun time. The ICS cook-off is limited to red chili containing no beans or pasta.  There will also be a second cook-off for those who wish to elaborate or experiment with their chili by adding additional ingredients.  The chili will be judged at 11:00 a.m. and then the public may purchase some of the chili. To become a member of the ICS or for a list of the chili cook-off rules, go to their website at www.chilicookoff.com.
