Some Like it Hot Chili Cook-Off!

The Harvard Square Business Association (HSBA) welcomes everyone to our FREE “Some Like it Hot PreviewChili Cook-Off” on Saturday February, 5th 2011 from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. Snow, rain or shine, ten of Harvard Square’s finest chefs are cooking a batch of their favorite chili for all to sample. The cook-off will take place on DeGuglielmo Plaza (in front of Crema Café at 27 Brattle Street) and is a fitting and spicy prelude to Super Bowl XLV (For Superbowl game day activities in Harvard Square click here)

Come join us and vote for the Best CHILI in Harvard Square. (Our chefs are counting on you!)

Participants this year include;

Crema Café
Fire + Ice
Grendel’s Den
Russell House Tavern
Tommy Doyle’s
Tory Row
UpStairs on the Square.

Additionally, our good friends from Trademark Tours will be serving up chips and salsa and JP Licks will present a special chili-themed ice cream. HOT Musical Entertainment will be provided by Bloco AfroBrazil!

To whet your appetite, here is a sampling of what you can expect!

Fire + Ice will be serving a classic chili – tasty hot, more meat than beans, and simmering in a special tomato broth.

Grendel’s Den will be serving their meatless Five Bean Chili topped with choices of Cilantro Pesto (Dairy Free option), Cheddar/Jack cheese and chopped onion.

Redline’s offering is a 3-Meat and 3-Bean Chili with Carnitas, Ground Beef, Italian Sausage, Black Beans, White Beans and Kidney Beans.

And UpStairs on the Square will be sampling their great short rib chili, and look forward to it!

The “Some Like it Hot Chili Cook-Off” is a featured event of the Winter Carnival in Harvard Square which continues through February 20th.
