Chili Cook-off

Chili Cook-off

What better way to warm a February day than to taste one-of-a-kind, homemade chilis and vote for your favorite?! Frankly, we can’t think of one, but in the name of good health and smart choices, once again we are hosting a virtual chili event this year!

You will have the opportunity to share your favorite recipes and images for the Chili Cook-off, Cornbread Competition, and Brownie Bake-off and win!

Make a Chili Bowl

FREE Saturday, February 5, 2 – 3:30 pm

Join us online to whip up a bowl or mug for your favorite soup or stew. We will provide materials for families to make and decorate clay bowls and mugs, available for pick-up ahead of time. Projects made will be fired and clear glazed at NCC and will be ready for use 2 – 3 weeks after projects are dropped off.

Submit Your Recipe

Deadline: January 14
Share your recipe and an image with NCC by January 14 to be included in the NCC Chili Cook-off Cookbook! Started in 2021, we plan to keep building this community recipe book through the years!

Post on Instagram to Win a Prize!

Deadline: February 3, 12 am

  • Share an image of your creation, served on handmade ceramic tableware, and use the tags #makertotable and #NCC2022ChiliCookOff;
  • All posts tagged by February 3 at midnight CT will be entered into a random drawing for this year’s grand prize. Judges’ Choice prizes will also be awarded for best images of chili, cornbread, and brownies.
