Lauren is a country girl, and enjoys “homestyle” and country-based cooking. After years of chasing coyotes and angry bulls off the properties, as well as hanging out in barns and tractor pulls…she has honed a delightful, rustic, smokey-campfire chili recipe that is sure to have you hollering, “YEEHAW.” Served with cheddar cheese and Fritos.
A Cincinnati native, one of Phil’s favorite dishes is his hometown chili – Mediterranean in style and includes cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, clove, cumin, chili powder, dark chocolate to make this a savory treat to put over spaghetti and topped off with cheese. One bite will make you a Bengals/Reds fan!
George’s ancient chili recipe came down through the internet two days ago. It is a Texas style chili – although, with beans, otherwise what’s the point? There are nods to Kansas City, his adopted home, as well as New York City…notes of hotdog water. The preparation process often creates subtle notes of a Dominican cigar.
When asked to name his mom’s favorite things for a kindergarten project, Carly’s son Vincent, said: “My mom likes doing puzzles with me and strong foods.” He nailed it and it’s still true! Cooking, celebrating and sampling new cuisines has always been central to her multicultural Korean American family. Her chili will be bold, but familiar with a Korean influence. OH, hey, Brent!… Carly want’s know if you can get some Soju for the bar?
Linnaia has loved to cook a variety of cuisines for as long as she can remember, but her expertise is spicy, savory and comfort foods. Her chili will bring you the best Fall Season, Game Day feels with an extra kick of the two P’s: Peppers and Paprika. Don’t worry, this dish will bring the kind of heat that anyone can handle but be sure to prepare your palate for all the flavors coming your way!
Most comfortable within the Italian lexicon of cuisine, Tim’s chili is notably Mediterranean in design with seared lamb and hints of espresso mingling together in the crock pot. He prefers to serve it over farfalle while singing Il Canto degli Italiani (the Italian National Anthem) and watching The Godfather.
