The second qualifying round in Bali’s 2012 Texas Chili Cook-off will take place in Ubud at The Melting Pot Game Room Pub on Sunday, June 17, 2012.
Colorful and lively affairs, the series of Chili Cook-offs held in Bali each year bring out a large group of amateur and professional cooks determined to demonstrate their acumen in making that much loved Texas creation of bubbling, spicy chili while entertaining the judges and the crowd with a bit of showmanship.
Chili is prepared from scratch at the cook-off site and judged on a set criteria by a panel of judges in a blind taste test. Entrants are allowed to participate as individuals or teams and often use creative with props, cheerleading teams, T-shirts and other distractions to encourage the judges and crowd to vote for their chili concoction.
Professional cooks and restaurants are invited to show off their best Texas chili recipes for bragging rights to Bali’s best pot of chili. There are three categories in which to compete; Chili Appreciation Society International -(CASI), freestyle and vegetarian. In addition, a People’s Choice Award goes to the chili winning acclimation from the gathered crowd.
Despite all the fun, the competition is deadly serious, leading to the 2nd Annual Texas Chili Cook-off to be held in Bali on October 21, 2012.
