Employees from the City of Asheville and Buncombe County Government battled for bragging rights (and some unique trophies) at the Fifth Annual Public Services Chili Cook-off. About 75 tasters judged the 6 teams' different takes on the American autumn staple. And what better place to enjoy chili than a firehouse?
Bragging Rights were assigned to the following teams:
- Best Overall: Chick's on Fire Kickin' Chicken Chili
- Spiciest: Culinary Punishment Pray for Justice
- Mild, Not Meek: Harambe's Heros
- Most Unique: Making Chili Stronger Together Again, Grannies House Road Chili
Big thanks go out to these guys! Working together, the City of Asheville and Buncombe County Government raised nearly $800 for United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County. All the chefs are surely already plotting and perfecting recipes for next year.
