Chili cook-off Nov. 20

Chili cook-off Nov. 20.

Enter the chili cook-off Nov. 20.

From the PPPMB Chili Cook-Off Committee (Julia Crane, John Gottula, Allison Jack and Jay Worley).

It’s time to pull out grandma’s secret chili recipe because the Fifth Annual Battle of the Plant Sciences Chili Cook-Off Fundraiser is coming Friday, November 20, 3 to 6 p.m., 135 Emerson.

Will your department emerge triumphant as the chili champions? Or can’t you stand the heat?

The departments of Horticulture, Plant Biology, Plant Breeding, Plant Pathology and Crop and Soil Sciences should assemble their best chili chefs in three categories: 1) Meat, 2) Vegetarian, and 3) Wild-Card (contains at least one non-traditional chili ingredient).

Students, faculty, and staff are all welcome to participate! Email chili entries to Julia (, including the following info: 1) names of cooks, 2) department 3) category, and 4) name of chili. Registration deadline is Friday, November 13. We only have room for 25 chili entrants–so don’t delay registering!

There will be prizes for the winners of each chili category and an invitation to present the winning chilies at the Great Downtown Ithaca Chili Cook-off & WinterFest. The Cook-Off will also feature a door prize raffle with over $600 in prizes from local businesses!

Thanks for your participation and we hope to see you there.
