Flavors at the fifth annual Morrow County Community Center’s Chili Cook-off ranged from spicy to traditional, as 12 Morrow County cooks entered their chili recipes into the contest at Seniors on Center in Mount Gilead last Sunday.
It was a gloomy, overcast afternoon, but the mood at the Cook-off was as warm and spicy as the chili.
Vickie Counts commented that “there was lots of variety and something for everyone. It was just lots of fun.”
Kim Bood won the first place trophy for “Most Unique.” First Place “Spiciest” trophy went to Tom Cronenwett. Carol Scott won First Place in the “Traditional” category.
The second place medal went to Dick Miller for “Most Unique,” Jeff Bood got a second place for his spicy venison chili and Mary and John McGill got a second place medal for their “Traditional” chili. “Peoples’ Choice” honors went to the Whetstone Industries Team.
Proceeds from the Chili Cook off will go to fund programs and operations for the Morrow County Community Center and a portion will go to the Whetstone Copy Cats.
