Guilford Park and Rec will warm up our cold winter days with their annual Chili and Soup Cook Off Sunday, January 27th. Join judges and guests from 3 PM to 5 PM at the Community Center to taste the best Chili Guilford cooks have to offer!
"The event is open to all Guilford residents and the rules are very simple," explains Ellen Clow, Recreation Supervisor at Guilford Park and Rec. "Just bring a quart of your chili or soup to the center with a list of ingredients you used, and you're in."
Not into making a traditional chili recipe? Not a problem.
"You can make any type of chili you would like," Clow tells Guilford Patch. "Last year we had folks enter a Chicken Chili, a Sausage one, even a veggie one, so the possibilities are endless."
This year, the Park and Rec also opted to add a Kids Dessert Cook off to get the whole family involved. The rules are simple with this Cook off too: just bring in enough dessert to feed eight, along with the ingredients you used, it's that easy!
"We're also really excited to feature live music this year by 'Take Two and Call Me in the Morning,'" concluded Clow. "The band features Dr. Rob Nolfo of Guilford Pediatrics, along with several other local doctors, and non-doctors."
