B’NAI SHOLOM TURNS UP THE HEAT WITH “CHILIPALOOZA”

on Thursday, 12 January 2017.

Chili photo r200Hot chili, cold beer and every cook’s chance to be the best chef at a Jewish-style cook-off contest.

It’s the fifth Chilipalooza at B’nai Sholom Reform Congregation.
    
The spicy deliciousness takes place Saturday, February 4, at B’nai Sholom, 420 Whitehall Road, Albany, New York, from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m.

Chilipalooza is open to the public.  Admission is $8 per person with a maximum of $20 per family.  Contest entrants receive a $4 discount.  Cornbread, fixings and beverages will be provided.

In addition, Shmaltz Brewing Co. returns with a “He’brew” Beer Tasting Table for those 21 years of age and older.  Ten dollars will buy five beer tasting tokens and a souvenir glass.  Paired with chili contest entries, this should be the perfect antidote to a cold February evening.

Chili buffs are encouraged to enter their favorite kosher-style recipes in one of two categories: meat (no pork or shellfish allowed, please), and vegetarian.  The audience will sample each and vote for the best palate-pleasers.  Winners will be determined after two rounds of tasting.  Top three vote-getters will receive awards.  Everyone gets to enjoy a delicious, informal culinary experience with an array of chili styles and tastes.

To enter the cook-off, contestants should plan to arrive at the synagogue by 5:30 p.m. with their chili pre-heated in crockpots set on “low.”
