PALM COAST Chili Cook-Off is Scheduled for December 2, 2017
We have an International Chili Society Cook-off in Palm Coast to benefit the Kindervision’s Greatest Save Program. The KinderVision Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, a recognized charity of Major League Baseball since 1992 and supported by law enforcement nationwide. The Greatest Save is a crime prevention program of the KinderVision Foundation.
The International Chili Society (ICS) is a non-profit organization that sanctions chili cook-offs with judging and cooking rules & regulations. These events are world wide and benefit charities or non-profit organizations. All winners of ICS sanctioned cook-offs qualify to compete for cash prizes and awards at the World’s Championship Chili Cook-off held each year in October. The ICS is the largest food contest, festival organization in the world.
The ICS has thousands of members worldwide who cook, judge and have a good time in helping raise needed funds for worthwhile charities or non-profit organizations. They are called Chili-heads!
During the 2009 chili year, which ran from Oct. 1, 2008 to Sept. 30, 2009, the ICS cookoffs raised more than $1,110,026.00 for various charities. The ICS sanctioned over 200 cook-offs with over one million people tasting, cooking, judging and having a great time. ICS sanctioned cook-offs include three categories: Red (traditional red chili), Chili Verde (green chili) and Salsa. The ICS annually crowns a World Champion in each category.
Each of the three categories will be judged in two separate competitions, the first for sanctioned International Chili Society members who are competing for a spot in the National Championship and the second is the Peoples Choice which will include local chefs from European Village restaurants.
Plenty of vendors, craft beer, cornhole and more!!!
