7th Annual Chili Cook-Off
Each year, WSA employees ward off the winter blues by competing for the perfect chili recipe. Our friends help us out by tasting each (mostly delicious) entry and deciding which one comes out on top. This year, Joseph Cabalquinto of State Auto Insurance, Elaine Isabelle of Shaw Contract, and Greg Davis and Matt Pickens of Roberts Service Group served as our guest judges. The stakes were high; Joseph is a foodie and dabbles as a chef.
We were all impressed with the quality of each chili this round. With thirteen entries, from Grandma’s secret recipe to Emeril’s vegetarian chili, our bellies were full of good food. Our recently hired staff are also cooking connoisseurs and they brought out the big guns with smoked poblanos, bacon bits, and pieces of seared steak.
The final verdict: Tianna Williams is the 2020 Chili Cook-Off Champion! As our newest employee, Tianna was not afraid to show us who the chili boss is. She brought depth to her traditional recipe with complex flavors and balanced textures. What did Shrek say? People are a lot like chili? Close enough.
