The Fishers Island American Legion Post 1045 Chili Cook Off was held Saturday, January 18.
With 17 chili entries, the 66 guests had a chance to sample as many as they liked, and then vote on their favorites – 1st, 2nd and 3rd place picks.
The chili varieties – including beef, vegetable, turkey, fish, venison and bison – were accompanied by a choice of sour cream, grated cheese, and onion toppings with corn bread and chips. Dessert selections were home made fudge brownies or a slice of pastry chef Vinny’s beautiful cake.
Don Murray’s chili came in on top with the most votes, followed closely by Fe Ahrens’ in 2nd and Jared Toldo’s in 3rd place.
All the chili entries were delicious – including those prepared by Deb Doucette, Di Shillo, Lou Horn, Call Nichols, Vicki Rogers, Eric Giles, Ryan Rod, Sharon Patterson, Py Peringer, Karla Heath, Peter Rugg, and Billy Bloethe.
