Spice Up Winter with Chili Recipes for Winter Carnival Annual Chili Cook-Off
Winter is here and the Winter Carnival Chili Cook-off is back! The annual event is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 22, starting 11 a.m. on the Huntington Beard Crouse Patio. The Traditions Commission invites students, staff and faculty to submit their recipes by Friday, Feb. 9, at noon. Recipes will be prepared by SU Food Services for tastings during the event.
“I love the chili cook-off because it’s such a fun break from the cold Syracuse winters, and it’s an awesome way to have your favorite homemade chili in the middle of the school year,” says Kristen Unangst ’18, member of the Traditions Commission.
Tastings at the cook-off are free and available from 11 a.m. as long as the chili lasts.
The tradition of Winter Carnival dates back to 1933. The week of festivities begins Tuesday, Feb. 20, and offers indoor and outdoor activities such as sled races, trivia, laser tag, skate night and more.
