Chili + Cornbread Cookoff

July 2023

Our offices in Tempe and Seattle recently hosted a Chili & Cornbread Cookoff, and the competition was fierce! Our talented teams in both cities brought their A-game, concocting mouthwatering chili and baking delightful cornbread.


The Tempe team enjoyed a potluck with vegan chili, pork chili, traditional spicy meat chili, and cornbread. With the heat wave in Arizona, some prepared a cool treat, including chili-themed fruit salad, cornbread cookies, and homemade ice cream.


Seattle chefs made mango chicken chili, Chidi chili, white bean chicken chili, spicy chili, pineapple chili, a multi-generational secret family chili recipe, and three types of cornbread. Troy VerValen won the contest for both chili and cornbread! Congrats!


Thank you to everyone who participated and made this cookoff an unforgettable culinary adventure.
