On Feb. 4, about 50 people attended the third annual chili cook-off at the home of Ellan and Erin Ben-Hayon. There were nine contestants that entered and at least a dozen judges to score based on four criteria: taste, consistency, appearance and spice level. 

 It was a spirited competition with Jack Kaufman taking honors, for the second year in a row, as chili champ!

The runner up was Gabby Glasser and third place was Rob Selvers.
