Been buried under a mountain of real work so I haven't had much time to focus on snarky food posts and combing the police blotter for info on who killed who over an under-baked sweet potato.
But I did want to pop in for a quick post about this weekend's upcoming Chili Cookoff here in Baltimore.
On Sunday, February 27th, east Baltimore will be host to an exciting chili showdown – the 2011 Ride For The Feast Chili Cook-Off! The Cook-Off is organized by the Ride For The Feast, a 2-day, 140-mile bike ride that supports Moveable Feast, a nonprofit dedicated to feeding homebound Marylanders with life-threatening conditions.
Join a chili-loving crowd as they congregate at the Moveable Feast kitchens, located at 901 N. Milton Ave, Baltimore MD 21205. Ride for the Feast riders and volunteers will team up and compete to have the best chili at the competition! Winners will be decided by both popular opinion as well as a judging panel. The event will also feature a raffle of a fabulous (secret) prize!
Last year, charisma & culinary creativity were key factors in winning the crowd's approval. Hundreds of dollars were raised to benefit the Ride for the Feast. It is a great opportunity to enjoy some homemade, unique chili recipes, meet new people, and support a good cause.
The Chili Cook-Off will be held on Feb. 27th from 1:00PM to 3:30PM at 901 N. Milton Ave. This event is open to the public. Tickets will be $15 at the door and include chili samples, snacks, and beverages. Raffle tickets will be sold at the door for $5 or inside for $7. Kids twelve and under are free.
So come on out and support this great cause and have and sample some warm, comforting chili as we ring out February and get ready for warmer days ahead!
