Chili Challenge Results & Photos

September 28, 2013

Nearly 400 people enjoyed chili sampling during the annual Chili Challenge in Waterville Valley.  Pacifico and Negra Modelo cooled hot tongues in the brew tent at the center of Town Square while The Uncle Steve Band performed live from the gazebo stage on the edge of Corcoran Pond.  It was a beautiful day to be in the White Mountains, blue skies and fall foliage surrounded guests as they made their way around Town Square to the sampling tents.

Chili Challenge participants included Waterville Valley restaurants:   The Blue Moon Café, Jugtown Country Store, Olde Waterville Pizza Company, Coyote Grill and the Waterville Valley Conference Center – all vying to be the next “Champion of Chili.”

As ballots were completed and dropped in the box, rumors spread around the packed square as to who would be the victor.  It was a close race with Chef Sean Stout of the Coyote Grill pulling away with a last minute push of votes.  Chef Stout’s team proudly accepted the $200 cash prize and “Chili Crown,” but more importantly Chef Stout walked away with bragging rights and the tile of ‘Champion of Chili.’
