Speedy Gonzales, Why Dontcha Come Home?

Ubud Home to Baliís First Ever Texas-Style Chili Cook-off


On Sunday, November 6, 2011, Bali's first-ever Texas Chili Cook-Off was held at The Melting Pot on Jalan Hanoman in Ubud, Bali.

Competition was fierce with the several hours of cooking time providing ample opportunitiy for the competitors to size up the opposition and determine their chances of taking home the trophy for best chili in their respective category. Meanwhile, plenty of food and games kept the crowd occupied, with chili tastings, ping-pong and eight-ball pool tournaments - all accompanied by copious amounts of ice cold beer and classic southern tunes to keep everybody entertained

There were seven entrants in two categories, CASI - meat chili, no fillers such as beans, macaroni, rice, hominy, etc., and Freestyle – a division in which anything goes.

The teams arrived on site early and worked furiously, attempting to create a winning combination from scratch by the 5:30 p.m. deadline. Cooking completed, four discerning judges awarded the winning trophies to the top tasting chilies created by Stephen Michaels in the CASI category, and Tony Day and Peter Waddell for their entry in the Freestyle division.

Maynard Ewton and Dave Moss triumphed in the People's Choice voting with the top crowd-pleasing chili of the day.
