Calling all Chefs for Galen Glen Winery’s Second-Annual Chili Cook Off
Press Release by Galen Glen Winery – What to do when the excitement of the holidays ends? Make Chili. That’s the mantra at Galen Glen Winery as they host their Second-Annual Chili Cook Off on Saturday, January 17th (with a snow date of Saturday, January 24th).
This event was a huge success in 2014 drawing multiple entrants including amateur and fire-house chefs and over 150 people to taste and judge on a bitterly cold January day. This event is free to enter and to attend. The winning chili recipe will be used in an autumn Lehigh Valley Wine Trail event and the winning chef will be used in promotional material for that event.
The cook off is open to professional and amateur chefs alike. Last year’s winner was Todd Keller of Kutztown. He received accolades in various media outlets and his Tex-Mex Chili recipe was served at Galen Glen Winery for the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail’s Chambourcin Weekend event in October.
To receive entry information, contact the winery via email at moc.nelgnelagnull@renurgeevurg, stop into the winery during normal business hours or click here for the entry form and details. Every entrant will receive a $25 gift certificate from the winery and in addition, the winner will receive “bragging rights,” a bottle of Cellar Red wine and two tasting glasses. Prizes will also be awarded to second and third place winners. Spaces are filling quickly.
