The stakes were high for Fred & Mel’s Chili Cook-Off 2016, as sixteen contestants came to battle it out with their best-tasting chilis.
Their ingredients included everything from brisket to peppers, beef to beans, corn to caramelized onions, and even bacon – it was all on the table as the contestants came up with their most original and unique recipes.
One by one, the judges tasted each contestant’s chili and offered their critiques. “Each chili has its own personality,” Susur noted.
And finally, the moment of truth arrived. The winner of Fred & Mel’s Chili Cook-Off 2016…drum roll…John! His winning chili featured delicious caramelized onions and a savoury brisket to boot. He was the lucky recipient of a ticket to see City and Colour live!
Thank you to all of the contestants who came out today! We’ll see you again next year.
