Wednesday, April 17, 2019 - The air was tense as the inaugural iuvo Chili Cook-off to Support the United Way got under way in the iuvo Canteen at high noon-ish on Wednesday. The contestants had been preparing for, well, at least 24 hours, for this challenge.
The discerning judges had inscrutable facades as they tasted each of the seven entries, and casted their votes. iuvo newcomer Jessica Meyers took home the first prize and the coveted Chili Bottle with her chicken quinoa chili. Coming in second was Doug Bolton (and Stephanie) with his Google Chili. Third place was too close to call, and was shared by Mary Richardson (Cincinnati Chili) and Tina Navarra (Taco Chili). All proceeds raised went to support the iuvo United Way campaign!
Thank you to all the contestants and judges!!!
