The Imperial Systems Annual Chili Cook-Off has proved that we have many unexpectedly talented chefs among us (and a few whose wives are talented chefs and let them take the credit). The event also brings out our inner food critic as we walk around the tables, tasting each chili like it’s a fine wine and debating the merits of each. From old-fashioned traditional chili to more unusual offerings, there is always something to satisfy every taste.
This year, for the second year in a row, Carl took home the trophy with his ever-popular (wife’s) recipe. And for the side dishes, Chad claimed the prize with a pretzel salad dessert. We eagerly anticipate next year’s Cook-Off, which will be in our new building. Perhaps next year someone will overthrow him, but for now Carl remains the reigning king of chili.
