Chili! Chili! Chili!
Page 1 of 2

Have you ever been to a chili cook-off? I'll admit chili cook-offs are not normally my "scene." But, if it involves a good cause, you can count me in. If you've visited COMDEX (COMputer Dealers EXposition) in the past, you probably know all about the Micrografx Chili for Children Foundation, the coordinators of an annual chili cook-off at trade show time.

This year's event is scheduled for November 16 and is probably the only place where you'll find a who's who in the computer industry dressed down and serving up five-star chili! During my last visit, I mingled with the likes of Richard Hart and Dr. Ruth (she was just launching her first Web site). Kim Komando even asked this budding Webicurean to assist with her chili! This event is great fun, and more important, the proceeds benefit the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (GO MISSING on CompuServe).

Clearly I'm out of touch with the wonderful world of chili cook-offs, so it's fortunate that there's an International Chili Society site packed with lots of information about chili cook-offs, including locations, lists of winners, and winning recipes. So if you're traveling the chili cook-off circuit, this is a "must see" for you! The International Chili Society is a not-for-profit organization and has been sponsoring cook-offs to raise money for charity, worldwide, for the last 30 years. If you're considering hosting your own cook-off, this is an excellent place to start.
