Falls Ballroom, March 27, 2018, 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM


COOKER ENTRY FORM


The Soup & Chili Cook-off is open to entrants from restaurants, organizations, individuals or teams.  There is NO ENTRY FEE.  Entrants bring 4-5 gallons of their soup or chili and a chafing dish to serve from.  All other serving supplies (i.e. ladle, spoons, cups and napkins) are provided.  Chafing dishes can be provided if needed (please mark that you need on the application.)  There are cash prizes in each category along with the coveted PEOPLE’S CHOICE traveling trophy and the BEST THEME category for your serving area.  Get creative and serve your soup or chili with a theme (i.e. baseball park chili, log cabin soup, etc.)  

You will be serving food to the public therefore it is essential that you meet these requirements.  Four to five gallons of soup or chili are to be prepared in a Kinship approved kitchen using safe food handling practices, including good personal sanitation, clean NSF approved equipment, proper cooking, cooling, transporting, re-heating and serving.   Meat must be cooked to appropriate temperature (beef, pork & poultry – 165°) and the entire product must be cooked to 165° prior to transporting to the Ballroom.  Failure to follow requirements will disqualify you from the contest. 


As a volunteer cooker, you are agreeing to the following Kinship requirements:


  • Prepare between four and five gallons of soup or chili in a licensed kitchen
  • Bring one (preferably two) people representing your restaurant, group, etc.  The Cook-Off is a venue which allows you to promote yourself.  Feel free to bring a banner (2’ x 6’ max), fliers, etc.  Consider a BOOTH THEME as a way to creatively combine your business or mission with your soup or chili.  This could include decorations, costumes, themed soup or chili, etc.
  • Transport food to the Falls Ballroom hot (above 140°)
