St. Stanislaus Alumni Group sponsored their Third Annual Chili Cook Off on Saturday, January 26, 2013.
Beginning with the 5:00 o'clock Mass and then 150 former classmates, parishioners and friends of St. Stanislaus
Parish, along with 17 chefs, who were all hoping that their Chili Creation would be the 'Best in Show', went over
to the Social Hall on Baxter.
It was a tough assignment for the three Judges, Kevin Holdash-2012 Winner, and Tony Brancatelli-Ward 12 Councilman
and Jon Loufman-WOIO-CBS Meteorologist. But someone had to make the sacrifice and taste all those Chilies.
When the Judges reached their final agreement, 3rd place went to John Sklodowski and his "Toucan Chili",
2nd place to Marilyn Mosinski and her "Not your Momma's Chili", and the 2013 Golden Spoon Award winner
was Ed Jason and his "Ed's Triple Pod Chili".
Congratulations to the winners and a heartfelt THANK YOU to all of the wonderful chefs for their delicious entries.
