ELIGIBILITY The first five chefs or businesses to register may enter the Vegan Chili Cook Off!
RECIPE SUBMISSION Your recipe must be completely vegan. That means no poultry, beef, fish, pork, dairy or eggs can be used in your chili. Watch out for hidden products like casein, honey, gelatin, and whey which are not vegan. If in doubt, contact us! Please submit your recipe with all ingredients, prep and cook times, yield, brands used, etc. when submitting your registration. Your recipe must be submitted at time of registration.
THE RULES All chili must be vegan and have a recipe submitted.
All chili must be in an 8 quart crock pot fully cooked and ready to serve. It's ok to go over 8 quarts, but anything under will automatically disqualify the entrant.
We will supply all paper cups to serve the equivalent of 1/4 cup chili to the first 100 guests. Each cup will be labeled with the name of your chili. Should duplicate names be submitted, the first registrant's name will take priority, and we will contact the other registrant to change the chili name.
Get to the Summer Shindig early! That means, approved registrants entering the Vegan Chili Cookoff must be willing to get there at 10 AM - SORRY no exceptions! Why you ask? Well, we need to sort out your crock pots before everyone arrives !
All registrants must stay at the Summer Shindig until all ballots are in and winners announced. This is typically around 1 PM. Why you ask? Well what's the sense of winning if we can't give you a prize for it!
WHO IS JUDGING MY VEGAN CHILI? Best in Show: The public who attend the Summer Shindig -- the first 100 guests or while vegan chili lasts!
THE PRIZES There will be special gifts for first, second and third prize winner!
REGISTER BELOW There is no cost to enter. All registrants get FREE admission to Summer Shindig. You must submit your BIO and RECIPE at time of registration or it will not be complete. Only completed registrations are eligible to enter. Once we have received 5 completed registrations, we will automatically close registration.
