November 3 is going to be a pretty awesome day in Stamford.  That’s when, from 11 to 3 pm, people will come from all over Fairfield County to sample amazing chili made by contestants in Stamford’s Annual Charity Chili Cook-Off.  This year it’s going to be hosted at Stamford Museum & Nature Center and proceeds will help to raise money for SM&NC and The Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County.  Entrance to SM&NC is free for members and non-members will need to pay the normal fees:  $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, $6 for students 18 + with a valid ID, $5 for children 4-17, and free entrance for kids three and under.   To taste the chili, it’s suggested (we strongly suggest, too) that you donate $10 per person or bring a bag of non-perishable food items and donate $5.  Once you arrive, you’ll get to taste each chili and vote for your favorite.
We already know that our buddy Joey Kuntz is competing, and we know he cooks a mean chili.  And, we also know that Stamford native Chef Hunter Zampa who competed on Rachael vs. Guy:  Kids Cook-Off will be there, cooking up his “Famous” Venison Chili.  Maybe you want to cook some chili, too?  There are still a few spots left (but just a few), so we wanted to get the word out if you’re interested.  If you’d like to compete, contact our buddy Joe Gonzalez at stamfordchilicookoff@yahoo.com or at (203) 981-1343.  When you’re there, also check out the Touch-A-Truck event…perfect for the family.
Good luck to all contestants!
