UUFF NEWS & EVENTS:

Chili Cook-Off, January 31, 5-8pm

Think your chili is something special?  Put your recipe to the test against fellow UUFF chefs in a battle of the best in our first-ever, soon-to-be-legendary Chili Cook-Off on January 31!

To satisfy all chefs, we’ll have two categories, standard and vegetarian, and every possible variation is welcome.  We’ll have a “celebrity” judging panel and a “people’s choice” award.  Judging will take place from 5:00-5:45, after which we will eat and enjoy each other’s company.  Fabulous prizes will be awarded!

If you would like to join the competition, please contact Susan Lovegrove by January 29 with the category you’ll be entering.  Your chili must be fully prepared and in a crockpot.  Nothing can be heated or cooked at the Fellowship.

If you do not want to prepare a chili, please bring cornbread, salad, or another side dish to contribute to the occasion.  The Friendship Committee will provide drinks and there will be a cooler available for BYOBeer.
